JOHANNESBURG, 27 August 2016 KwaZulu-Natal officials say the controversial election of municipal officials in the Nquthu Municipality was illegal.

DURBAN - President Jacob Zuma will address a rally in Nquthu, KwaZulu-Natal as the ANC’s elective conference looms large.

Nquthu Local Municipality is due to hold by-elections on May 24, since the hotly contested region area has had no administration since August’s local government elections.
