The DA is contesting two wards in the area.

Zille says her party could take control of the wards if all their supporters come out to vote.

"We have two bi-elections here in the Nelson Mandela Metro. One in ward 40 the other in ward 10.

"Both are challenging wards for us and we would very much like to win them. We have two excellent candidates who have been dedicated to public service."
