South Africans voted Wednesday in closely-contested municipal elections that could deal a heavy blow to the African National Congress (ANC) that has ruled since leading the struggle against apartheid.

Nelson Mandela’s former party risks losing control of key cities including the capital Pretoria, the economic hub Johannesburg and coastal Port Elizabeth, according to some polls.

Development in South Africa has been patchy since Mandela won the first multi-racial elections in 1994, with many black communities still struggling with poor housing, inadequate education and a lack of opportunities.​
