Johannesburg - A planned meeting between the City of Joburg and Alexandra residents has been cancelled after the event descended into chaos.
Mayor Herman Mashaba and COJ officials were set to finally meet with residents following days of protest over mushrooming shacks and poor service delivery.
Mashaba came under fire for the delay in meeting residents after the protests flared up, with residents eventually refusing to meet with him and instead demanding a meeting President Cyril Ramaphosa and Gauteng Premier David Makhura.
Both visited the community last week and addressed residents.
Monday's meeting was scheduled to take place at the Marlboro Community Hall at 6pm as part of the scheduled Integrated Development Plan (IDP) for Alexandra and region E but got off to a rocky start as residents refused to be addressed by officials.
