Brits - Residents of Hebron, North West, handed over a memorandum of grievances at the Madibeng local municipality's offices in Brits on Wednesday, giving it 14 days to respond.

Among their demands was the sacking of their ward councillor, who they accused of flaunting her wealth instead of attending to their needs.

They accused her of “unacceptable misconduct and arrogance”.

“She publicly boasts of her wealth while addressing public gatherings,” community leader Samson Monama claimed.

“She does not address government issues.”

The residents wanted sporting facilities built in the township and collapsed bridges repaired.

“Roads are in a bad state. They are full of potholes.”

Street lights on Molefe Makinta highway through their area were no longer working, Monama added. - Sapa
