Went looking on the IEC website (www.elections.org.za) for the results of the previous ward elections; only to discover they've gone MIA. They were still there during the elections in April, and I've been meaning to check the actual election results for Ward 23; since from my random sampling from the voting stations in April, it seems to me that this is still very much UDM Country.
Here's a smatttering:
MDEDELENI JUNIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL: UDM 66.8%, ANC 23,08%
PATO JUNIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL: UDM 77.73%, ANC 16.02%
LOWER MPAKO SENIOR PRIMARY SCHOOL: UDM 68.75%, ANC 28.57%
UPPER MPAKO SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL: UDM 69.47%, ANC 12.63%
KWAAIMAN JUNIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL: UDM 62.50%, ANC 11.06%, COPE 24.52%!
COFFEE BAY JUNIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL: UDM 25.71%, ANC 46.79%, COPE 24.68
Out of a total of 75 voting stations in the region from north of Mqanduli (Holomisa's home town) down to, and between Umtata Mouth and Hole in the Wall the overall result was as follows:
UDM 51.02%, ANC 39.57%, COPE 7.26%
Unfortunately I can't correlate the voting stations to the Wards, but still resent the imposition of Nkosinathi Mvunge as ward councilor in a predominantly UDM area. I've written in the past about his behavior here to try and obliterate any opposition. http://www.wildcoast.com/search/node/mvunge
Anyone perhaps know where one can find the actual results of the municipal elections per ward?
