Although it is still the largest party in the country, the ANC lost its council majority in
local elections, after running the city since the end of apartheid in 1994.
The party has also lost control of the capital, Pretoria and Cape Town.
Of the six biggest cities in South Africa, Durban-  seen as a stronghold for South African President, Jacob Zuma- was the only place where the ANC won an outright majority.
