As the country readies for local government elections voting day, there are concerns about interruptions that may erupt in different parts of the country.
The City of Ekurhuleni has informed residents that the South African weather forecasters predict strong and damaging winds to hit Gauteng from midnight until Wednesday morning.
And there is no petrol in some Gauteng garages due to the ongoing petrol strike by workers affiliated with the Chemical Energy Paper Printing Wood and Allied Workers Union (Ceppwawu).
Director of the Electoral Institute for Sustainable Democracy in Africa (EISA), Paul Berkowitz, says the turn out of voters tomorrow is likely to be lower than in 2011, except in big metros like the Nelson Mandela Bay where parties have been campaigning hard.
Any turn up above 15 million it should be seen as good and healthy in the context of municipal elections.— Paul Berkowitz, director of the Electoral Institute for Sustainable Democracy in Africa
In general, the low turn out should favour opposition parties, particularly the DA, and will hurt the ANC.— Paul Berkowitz, director of the Electoral Institute for Sustainable Democracy in Africa
The ANC has many more supporters but those supporters don't come out in big numbers for municipal elections compared to provincial/national elections.— Paul Berkowitz, director of the Electoral Institute for Sustainable Democracy in Africa
