ANC Loses Power In Johannesburg For First Time In 22 Years

South Africa BA Party

For the first time in 22 years, South Africa’s governing party, African National Congress (ANC), has lost control of the country’s largest city and economic centre, Johannesburg.

This comes after the city council elected as Mayor, Herman Mashaba From the opposition Democratic Alliance (DA).

The ANC had run the city since the fall of apartheid in 1994 but it lost its council majority in local elections, although it is still the largest party.

The party has also lost control of the capital, Pretoria and Cape Town.

Of the country’s six biggest cities, the ANC only won an outright majority in Durban, seen as a stronghold for South African President, Jacob Zuma.
