The Democratic Alliance (DA) local councillors and activists embarked on a protest outside Emfuleni municipal offices in Vanderbijlpark on the13th September over poor to non-service delivery. The DA says Emfuleni Local Municipality has neglected its residents for far too long.

 “The residents live in bad conditions with no electricity, constant water outages and potholes in all streets and roads. The residents deserve better.” Speaking to some of residents of Emfuleni, they claim that the local municipality is not doing anything to better the situation in and around the area in terms of curbing water leakages and securing electrical cables which are stolen almost every day.

A woman who asked not to be named told the that even now some parts of Boipatong township are without the electricity.“ We just bought groceries and meat and one wonders what is going to happen to our food that need refrigeration, this is what we have to contend with, she concluded“.
