Pretoria - More than 250 residents of Mamelodi East incensed by miscommunication and impatience over service delivery barricaded streets with debris and burnt tyres, disrupting traffic in the area for most of the day on Wednesday.
The protests stem from electricity and other basic services problems and the City of Tshwane’s decision to relocate them to Nellmapius without their consent.
Solomon Mahlangu Drive and Tsamaya Road were blockaded, preventing cars from entering or leaving the area.
Children were prevented from going to school while some residents could not go to work because the area was a no-go zone.
Putco buses in the area were also affected.
