Angry mob block roads

UPDATE - 20:10

 

Marikana Section residents who are demanding their money back from the Ward 20 councillor, Ms Mancy Ndoda, have blocked the road in and around the area.

The roads are blocked with stones.

The traffic circle that leads to the Mall@eMba is also blocked.

The residents said they were angered by the police who refused to open a case against Ms Ndoda. They alleged that the police said they do not see a case in the matter.

However, Capt Magonseni Nkosi, police spokesman, disputed that and said the residents held a meeting with Ms Ndoda and other community leaders at the police station which was mediated by the police.

He said the meeting was underway when they received a call and immediately left the meeting. “We are currently in talks with the residents to control the situation.

We ask motorists to use the road around Mandela Section cautiously.”

 

UPDATE – 12:18

 

Residents are outside eMbalenhle Police Station to open a case of fraud against Ms Mancy Ndoda.
They say they want their money today or the implicated people, including Ms Ndoda, must be arrested.

 

 

 

ORIGINAL ARTICLE

 

eMBALENHLE – Angry residents of Marikana Section are protesting outside Ms Mancy Ndoda, Ward 20 councillor’s, house and are demanding their money.

They claim they were told they had to pay R215 per shack so that they could pay lawyers to defend them.

The residents said the total amount that they want is R360 000 because the total number of shacks in the area is 1 800.

“We want our money back or else.
“This councillor must account for her actions, we want our money.”

The residents said they will also go to the houses of all the implicated people.
