Pretoria - The two third majority victory registered by the ANC in Tshwane during the ward nine by-election in Winterveldt on Wednesday demonstrated that people strongly rejected the DA-led administration.
This was according to the regional party chairman Dr Kgosi Maepa, who took to social media to celebrate the ANC's 68% win.
The DA scored 17%, while the EFF, which had hoped to take over the ward, only scored 10% at the ballots.
The new ward councillor Barbara Baloyi would succeed the former ANC councillor Sipho Maselane, who was expelled from the party after he was convicted of rape at the Ga-Rankuwa Magistrate's Court in July.
Maepa said: "Voters and residents of Tshwane are strongly rejecting the corrupt DA-led administration and their partners ACDP, Cope, EFF and FF+."
