Ward 5 includes Arcadia, Graslaagte, Vaaldam and Johnson's Ridge at Humansdorp, and was also won by the DA in the 2016 municipal elections.

The results of the by-election were:

Kouga Mayor Elza van Lingen welcomed Coenraad to the Council.

"Congratulations to Clr Coenraad. I know she will do a great job representing the people of Ward 5 and will make a positive contribution to Council.

"After decades of mismanagement, there is still a lot of change needed in Kouga, but we are on the right track and will turn the municipality into a world-class organisation that serves the people," the Mayor said.
