Alexandra residents arrive in Sandton to deliver a memorundum


    Alexandra residents have arrived outside the City of Johannesburg Regional Offices in Sandton to deliver their memorandum of demands.

    This comes after the Joburg Mayor Herman Mashaba failed to respond to their grievances.

    Traffic has been severely affected as police closed off many roads to allow for the protestors to march. Residents took to the streets from Wednesday last week in protest over the mushrooming of illegal dwellings in the area which they say impact on the delivery of services for residents.

    Residents agreed to embark on a second total shutdown at a community meeting at the weekend.

    The angry residents further say they will boycott the upcoming May 8 elections should their demands for improved service delivery not be addressed.

    The mayor said he would engage with community members during the Joburg IDP session scheduled for 15 April.
