Buthelezi votes in Mahlabathini

The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi has on Wednesday morning voted at Buthelezi Traditional Court in Mahlabathini, uLundi in northern KwaZulu-Natal.

The voting station is a stone’s throw away from his KwaPhindangene residence.

The voting station has 789 registered voters who are expected to cast their vote.

Ward nine where Buthelezi will be voting is being contested in the main by three rivals, the IFP, African National Congress (ANC) and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).

African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) leader Kenneth Meshoe says he is unhappy about the treatment he and his wife have received from IEC officials at Sanward in Ekurhuleni.

Meshoe says his wife’s name is not on the voters roll despite both of them visiting the polling station to verify their details during the voters’ registration exercise.

Meanwhile, a voting station in Enkovukeni which is an island in KwaMhlabuyalingana in the far north of KwaZulu-Natal is expected to start counting votes at two o’clock in the afternoon.

The area has less than 100 people who registered to vote.

The IEC officials opened late the polling station late as the boat could not sail to the area in time.

People in the area rely on the boat as means of transport to the town of Manguzi.
