SACP set to contest Metsimaholo by-election
The South African Communist Party (SACP) will contest it's first election on Wednesday.
The tripartite alliance will engage in a bid to win the Metsimaholo Local Municipality in the Free State, where the African National Congress (ANC) won less than 60% of the vote in the national elections in 2014.
Stephen Grootes spoke to SACP spokesperson Alex Mashilo.
The communist party expects to win about four wards.
