Durban - A small group of aggrieved protesters blockaded a road in Umlazi as they complained they were not receiving assistance following the deadly storms this week.
The protests blocked off Mugabe Road in Umlazi’s L section. The road connects the north of Umlazi with the west of Umlazi, where sections such as AA, BB and CC are located.
Some of the residents had told broadcaster eNCA earlier on Thursday that they would protest as they were not receiving assistance following the storm, which has now killed 70 people.
The protestors said the councilor was not assisting them in their plight.
Several houses were damaged severely in the area. Some of the houses in the area are built next to a flowing river.
