Service delivery protests have continued to spread, with angered community members in Soweto joining in the movement. A community leader has commented that if their demands are not meet, they will aim to shut down the entire province.
Shutdown protests started in Soweto today, with community members marching to the office of the premier.
Protesters in Pennyville are raising their voices over poor service delivery and intend to raise their concerns with the official.
A community leader spoke to eNCA, saying that a memorandum of grievances had already been handed over but that they had yet to be resolved.
The leader had said they would be joined by community members from Alexandra and Tshwane in their march today.
Briefly.co.za had reported earlier that Total Shutdown protests had taken place in the communities, lamenting issues concerning housing and service delivery.
This had prompted President Cyril Ramaphosa to visit Alexandra yesterday, where he had given his ministers seven days to come up with solutions to immediate concerns.
Today's protest had begun at 2am this morning, with riled residents calling for evictions to stop, demanding ownership of properties they have occupied for almost 10 years.
