African National Congress (ANC) in Gauteng says the ANC was able to retain power in all wards they governed.
ANC Gauteng spokesperson, Nkenke Kekana, says this is a sign that people are still confident about the ANC.
However, he says the ANC will go to the wards to find out why 'their voters' did not come out in large numbers.
The most important thing is to continue doing the good work that we have been doing.— Nkenke Kekana, ANC Gauteng spokesperson
We are digging into each municipality, to find out why our voters did not come out in large numbers to vote for the ANC.— Nkenke Kekana, ANC Gauteng spokesperson
We are satisfied that we have done the best in delivering services to people in improving the lives of people in Gauteng.— Nkenke Kekana, ANC Gauteng spokesperson
Kekana says the opposition party used national issues to get people to not vote for the ANC. He maintains that the ANC has delivered services for the people at municipal level.
