South Africa’s municipal elections will be contested by the ANC, DA, EFF, and other parties – here are how their leaders stack up when it comes to academic qualifications.

Municipal elections are held every five years to elect councillors who will be responsible for governing a municipality.

The latest round of municipal elections will be held on 3 August 2016, and the ANC, DA, EFF, and other political parties are in full electioneering mode.

The leaders of the various parties are scrutinized for their fitness to hold public office, and educational qualifications are often mentioned as part of the process.

While some political leaders, like the FF Plus’s Pieter Mulder and the DA’s Mmusi Maimane, are well qualified, others like President Jacob Zuma do not have a strong academic background.
