The results are:

In 2011:

DA: 58,2 %
ANC: 39 %

Yesterday (2014)

DA: 82,26 %
ANC: 17,66 %.

“The ANC has lost support because of its ongoing mismanagement of Buffalo City. There’s no doubt in my mind that the recent R9 million taxi scandal played a role in this regard,” said Athol Trollip, leader of the DA in the Eastern Cape.

“Voters of this ward want to stop corruption and ensure that we have clean government that can create jobs, maintain infrastructure and make Buffalo City a winning city. This victory will create momentum for the DA march towards winning Buffalo City Metro,” added Trollip.
