ANC voters torn between service delivery issues and Zuma's embattled leadership

The electorate was faced with the dilemma of voting for the African National Congress (ANC) to meet their service delivery needs or vote against Zuma's leadership of the party.

This comes as 2016 local government elections results trickle in after South Africans voted for their preferred political parties on Wednesday.

702's John Robbie spoke to senior analyst at the Governance & Justice Division of the Institute for Security Studies, Judith February, regarding the matter.

Listen to the interview below:

The last local government elections had a 57% voter turnout, it depends on where the turn out is lowest and who it will have an effect on.

Judith February, Institute for Security Studies

We [electorate] don't believe he's [Zuma] doing a good job but we can look beyond that and say the ANC is still the party people most identify with and will get things done if they can clean up their internal mess.
