MBOMBELA – Following last Wednesday’s general elections, South Africans held their breath as the results poured in at the IEC results centre at Mbombela Stadium.

Party representatives were monitoring the results and kept a watchful eye on the leader board in anticipation of their respective parties securing more seats in the Mpumalanga Provincial Legislature.
