PRETORIA - As the battle for control of one of South Africa's most fiercely contested metros continues, Tshwane residents have called on whichever party wins to serve the people.

The country's capital has been in the spotlight over the past few months after violent protests over the African National Congress (ANC)'s preferred mayoral candidate Thoko Didiza led to the death of at least five people.

There's a sense of desperation for change in Atteridgeville.

A 45-year-old man, who has lived in the area all his life, says he doesn't care which party is in charge, as long change is brought to his home town.

"Let someone different come to bring change because ANC is being promising these and that, they never deliver. There are children that still attend classes under a tree."

One woman says she's indifferent to who governs the city as she has lost faith in politicians.

"Yes I have lost faith; you see I don't have a mark on my fingers. I have not voted because to them it's all about money and corruption. So I can't deal."

The results from yesterday's election continue to stream in.
