ANC says it’s not worried about votes in Nelson Mandela Bay

The African National Congress said it was confident that the expulsion of the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa from the tripartite alliance would not affect the party's chances of retaining control of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality.

The party's National Executive Committee member Bheki Cele was campaigning in Sidwell yesterday where he addressed COSATU shop stewards ahead of next month's local government polls.

The Nelson Mandela Bay, with its motor manufacturing sector, is a NUMSA stronghold which was expelled from COSATU in 2014.

Cele recalled how he addressed an almost empty hall in New Brighton two months ago.
