Midvaal: ANC ‘very disappointed’

African National Congress secretary general Gwede Mantashe.
The ANC was “very disappointed” over losing Midvaal in Gauteng to the DA and needed to work harder in minority areas, the party's secretary-general said at the IEC's results centre in Pretoria on Thursday.
“The ANC must work harder, we are not doing well in the minority areas,” Gwede Mantashe said as election results started coming in. “We are sorry we didn't take it … we really wanted it.”
He said the ANC needed to “invest more time” in areas such as Eldorado Park, southern Johannesburg, which had “shifted” its vote.
It was too early for the Democratic Alliance to say it had won Cape Town by a “landslide”. According to initial results the ANC however improved its support in the Western Cape, in areas such as Mitchells Plain.
A number of municipalities were also doing well in KwaZulu-Natal. There was “nothing to worry about” in Nelson Mandela Bay.
Mantashe said the party needed new campaigns in areas in which it was weak. - Sapa
