Logistical challenges caused delays to the nomination process kick-off time at KaMkhweli Community Hall in Siphofaneni.

The process had to be moved to an open space. The hall which was envisaged for the exercise proved to be small and couldn’t accommodate the over 1500 registrants that showed up.

The plan to conduct the registration process in the community hall delayed the start of the nominations and it only started around 1:20 pm.
