Despite "infighting" among its councillors leading to the dissolution of the Mamusa Municipality in North West, the ANC retained control of the council after Wednesday's by-elections, while the EFF increased its support.

The FF Plus took a ward from the DA, but the two parties remain with one seat each in the council after the proportional votes were taken into consideration.
