Limpopo premier race D-day looms



While South Africa’s 2019 election results are expected to be declared by this coming Saturday, Limpopo premier Stan Mathabatha has jumped the gun and showed his confidence that his party will win the province with over 83% of the province’s vote.


Speaking from his voting station at Oos Skool, Polokwane, yesterday Mathabatha said that he was most certain that the ANC would win the elections hands down, nationally and provincially.


“We are going to win these elections by between 83 to 86 % and I’m confident about that,” said a buoyant Mathabatha after casting his vote.


South Africans took to the polls yesterday to excersize their democratic right of choosing a political party that will govern the country and respective provinces for the next five years.


“After winning, we are going to take forward what we were doing. Remember in 1994 when we took over we have been running on a program. Now we are running a government which is flourishing,” Mathabatha bragged.


He emphasized that he was sure that South Africa’s who were of a sober mind would go out in their numbers to vote for his party.


The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) provincial Chairperson Jossey Buthane was in good spirits yesterday evening and laughed of Mathabatha’s predictions.


“The EFF will be the only winner coming out of these elections. The only one. Out of all the 43 parties in the province, we will be the only winners.


“We will be the only ones with arrows pointing up. The ANC and other smaller parties have lost ground. We are confident and the mood is good,” Buthane exclaimed.


He said his party was humbled by the good turn out yesterday, especially from the senior citizens, who had gone out to vote for the red berets.


Another premier candidate of the so called big three parties in the country DA’s Jacques Smalle was worried as to how the IEC conducted its special vote system.


“Our concern is how the ANC did its special votes today [yesterday]. IEC officials went out on their own without supervision, party agents or anything of the sort. We are extremely concerned about that,” Smalle said.


The race for the Limpopo premiership will only be known on Saturday. For now all parties can do is to predict how they did in the 2019 elections.


However, they all had one agreement.” The turnout of voters looked good yesterday, “they said in unison.
