BY-ELECTIONS: ANC has a big night in Northern KZN, making gains against IFP

The win in eNdumeni gave the party outright control of the council. The ANC has now won three wards off the IFP in northern KwaZulu-Natal since December 2018 and are rebounding against the IFP in this battleground part of the province.
