By-election to replace DA councillor

Political parties across the spectrum were already rallying their troops behind the scenes in anticipation of by-elections to replace Bela-Bela DA Councillor Kobus van der Merwe.

The DA moved swiftly, disclosing that applications for prospective candidates for Ward 9 were to be thrown open soon to be vacated by the retired Van der Merwe.

The popular DA councillor has since relocated to George in the Western Cape.

Bela-Bela DA Councillor David Senosha said National Assembly lawmaker, Desire van der Walt and the party’s Limpopo leader, Jacques Smalle, were expected to visit Bela-Bela on Sunday 29 April.

The DA envoy would be on a mission to provide strategic advice on the process of fielding a candidate for the soon-to-be vacant ward.

Bela-Bela EFF co-ordinator, Sello Moswoeu, said his party also has an eye on developments around Ward 9, adding a candidate would be identified to act on behalf of the EFF.

He said EFF supporters in the ward would be mobilised to support their candidate by voting in their numbers.

Jeremiah Ngobeni of the ANC said the party would definitely contest the ward they had lost to the DA.

He said the ANC was also waiting for Van der Merwe to resign officially.

Meanwhile, the ANC has retained Ward 16 in Mogalakwena following a recent by-election.

ANC candidate Lesiba Petrus Maloba emerged victorious with 43.53% of the votes.
