    Many interesting ones here:

    Ward 9 in Tlokwe might give a taste of what is to come as ANC will have to fight in a several more by-elections later. Control of the municipality will then be at stake.

    Three wards in Oudtshoorn will be contested due to ANC councillors defying their party and voting with the DA. The old cllrs will likely stand as DA candidates now, and only 1 of them needs to win for DA to retain the council that they recently took over.

    In Bitou, DA governs in coalition with COPE. But if they win in ward 4, they can govern alone. More about that in this article:

    Default Voters removed from Vryheid Voters Roll

    The Independent Electoral Commission has removed more than 1500 people from the voters' roll in Vryheid, IEC chairwoman Pansy Tlakula said on Wednesday.

    Possible voter registration fraud sparked the move and police had been asked to investigate, she told reporters in Durban.

    The by-election for ward 22 of the Abaqulusi municipality scheduled for April 24 was postponed after it was alleged that hundreds of people registered in the ward did not live there.

    Tlakula said 1525 people were removed from the Ward 22 voters role.

    interesting. Is voting against the party line a valid reason for being fired? Wonder what the CCMA will say about that?

    Dude, these children are not actually to be taken seriously.
    You can't expect kids who have barely managed to pass anything at school to actually compete in the real world?
    Do you realise how silly that makes you look?
