ANC suffers major setback

South Africa local elections: ANC suffers major setback

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-36985339

"With 92% of the votes counted after Wednesday's municipal elections, the party has lost the key battleground of Nelson Mandela Bay to the opposition Democratic Alliance (DA).

The two parties are in a close fight for Johannesburg and Pretoria.

But the ANC is still in the lead nationally, with 54% of the vote.

The ANC has won more than 60% of the vote at every election since the end of apartheid more than two decades ago. ..."

Don't know the other parties involved so I can't say much - other than the ANC lost a bit of support.
