South Africa's African National Congress party has won the national election with 62.16 percent of the vote, the country's election commission has said.
The provisional result shows the ANC's main rival, the Democratic Alliance, took 22.22 percent, while the ultra-left Economic Freedom Fighters managed 6.35 percent.
It is 20 years since South Africans went to the polls full of hope and in the knowledge they were casting the votes that would make history.
Julius Malema is the "firebrand" who led the ANC’s youth league before being kicked out. Now he leads his "Economic Freedom Fighters" party.
