KZN Community Safety Department beefs up security for voter registration weekend

The KwaZulu-Natal Department of Community Safety has vowed to provide safety at voting stations ahead of this registration weekend.

On Friday, the province announced that additional law enforcement officers would be deployed to all polling areas this weekend.
