Alexandra ANC officials vacate offices
Residents have vowed to protest tonight if there isn't a re-run of the elections in the area.
JOHANNESBURG - ANC councillors whose offices were damaged by angry Alexandra residents have vacated the building and security has been stepped up.
Residents have vowed to go back to the streets tonight if there is no re-run of the elections in the area.
The community accused the ANC of vote rigging after ballot boxes were found at a nearby shack , but the ruling party strongly denied any wrongdoing.
Sizakele Nkosi-Malobane, a member of the Gauteng Legislature, said the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and other residents who protested late last night must accept that they have lost the area.
"Majority of the people here are voting for the ANC so they can come with all their allegations because this happens when a person loses."
The building which houses offices for ward councillors's and Independent Electoral Commission officials was set alight late last night.
A total of 31 people have since been arrested. All pictures in this story are courtesy of EWN.
