Brits - EFF leader Julius Malema on Tuesday promised to fight side by side with Mothutlung residents, near Brits, until they got water.
“We must arrange a proper march to Madibeng municipality and I will be there,” he told locals at a sports field following violent protests in the township for water.
Two people were killed during a service delivery protest on Monday.
Roads in the township have been barricaded with rocks and tree stumps. Police were patrolling the area.
Malema told residents he had heard their plea.
