Flora Maboa-Boltman will be sworn in as the new executive mayor of the Govan Mbeki Municipality on 16 August.
With more than 86 000 votes cast for the ANC in this municipality on 3 August, the party remains the ruling party in the council.
The ANC also retained their 26 wards, but had to part with nine proportional seats.
The number of seats occupied by the ruling party has now shrunk from 45 to 36.
The EFF scooped up the vacant nine proportional seats.
More than 20 000 people voted for the EFF in the Govan Mbeki municipal area.
The DA also retained their 6 wards, but lost one of their traditional 10 proportional seats.
The party secured more than 36 000 votes.
The Vryheidsfront Plus’ 3 628 votes were just enough to land them two proportional seats while the last remaining proportional seat will be filled by a councillor from the Sakhisizwe Progressive Movement.
They pulled 1 879 votes.
A special council meeting is being held at 11:00 on Tuesday to inaugurate the new mayor.
Kriel
Kriel is split in two wards under the banner of the Emalahleni (Witbank) Municipality.
The DA secured both wards. This is quite an achievement as no other ward in the whole of Mpumalanga has managed to change its ward councillor from yellow to blue.
Ward 26 now has a DA councillor by the name of Rika Bodenstein-who for the past few years became known and loved by the residents of Silwer Fleur.
Ward 27 was snatched from the ANC by councillor Dirk Grobler. Ward 27 encompasses a large rural area around the power stations and mines.
Dr Nico Coetzer, a local pastor who stood for the ACDP, gathered enough votes to be declared a PR councillor in the municipality.
