Mamelodi residents are up in arms with Tshwane DA Mayor, Solly Msimanga for poor service delivery. Thousands took to the street and barricaded Solomon Mahlangu Drive, claiming that Msimanga has failed to visit the area since taking office.
“We deployed metro police to the area and also warned motorists not to use the road,” said Isaac Mahamba who is Tshwane metro police spokesperson.
Msimang has made commitments to meet with communities but non of them has taken place since he took over the office.
Mayoral spokesperson Samkelo Mgobozi blamed the ANC service delivery and said that infrastructure degradation cannot be reversed in six months.
