VOTE SET ASIDE IN MTUBATUBA

The Witness - - NEWS -

RE­SULTS of the Mtubatuba ward four by-elec­tion have been set aside after the ANC won a re­lated case.

The ANC had lodged a com­plaint with the Elec­toral Court be­fore the May by-elec­tion, which was won by an IFP can­di­date.

The ANC had com­plained about the reg­is­tra­tion of more than 200 peo­ple from a nearby ward and other vot­ers whose ad­dresses could not be ver­i­fied.

ANC provin­cial sec­re­tary Mdu­miseni Ntuli said they were happy the Elec­toral Court ruled in their favour.

He said it was mal­prac­tice and fraud­u­lent to tam­per with the vot­ers’ roll and reg­is­ter­ing vot­ers in a ward where they do not legally re­side.

“The ANC is happy that fi­nally the IFP has been ex­posed...”

“We also call on the IEC to take le­gal ac­tion against the IFP, in this re­gard as they have clearly bro­ken the law,” he said. — Wit­ness Re­porter.
