DURBAN – The small KZN town of Nquthu is expected to hold by-elections on Wednesday.
On Sunday, President Jacob Zuma spoke at an ANC rally in the town, appealing to opposition members to vote for the ANC.
Nquthu Local Municipality has had no administration since August’s local government elections.
The ANC and NFP coalition were one councillor short against a coalition of the EFF, DA and IFP.
This eventually led to the collapse of the Nquthu council.
Political parties are now camping out in the area ahead of Wednesday’s by-election.
