DA leader Mmusi Maimane has claimed that the ANC will lose its majority in Gauteng in Wednesday's crucial general elections — a prediction in line with a recent poll.  “The ANC will split, it’s finished, that thing,” Maimane said while accompanying DA Gauteng premier candidate Solly Msimanga, who was voting at Capital Park Primary School in Tshwane. Maimane had voted in Dobsonville, Soweto earlier. However, ANC Gauteng chair and premier David Makhura said earlier that he was confident that the governing party would retain its majority and not have to resort to coalitions.
