Pretoria - A group of angry residents of Soshanguve Block G, Pretoria, hoisted banners and posters high into the air on Friday to express dissatisfaction with their local councillor.
As an African National Congress convoy, including President Jacob Zuma, passed by they started singing and dancing. The placards read: “Dolly is corrupt”, “please Msholozi help us, councillor Dolly Ledwaba must go. She is abusive, does not respect the elderly”.
Residents accused the councillor of not doing anything to assist those with problems.
“When we told her we did not have water, she told us she is not the office and does not open taps,” said one resident.
Dimakatso Mogotsi said the councillor removed those she did not agree with from the local ANC branch.
“She calls the branch her ANC. If you don't agree with her, she removes you,” she said.
Mogotsi said they had tried on numerous occasions to address the matter with ANC regional chair and Tshwane mayor Kgosientso Ramokgopa but nothing had been done.
Zuma was in the township on Friday for door-to-door election campaigning. - Sapa
