Boiketlong protest action

05 February 2014 - The Executive Mayor of Emfuleni Local Municipality Councillor Greta Hlongwane has noted with deep sadness and disappointment the protest action by community members of Boiketlong in Sebokeng. Early this morning, protesters blockaded most of the roads leading in and out of Sebokeng making it difficult for motorists to access or leave the area.

The Municipality wants to put it on record that the protest has nothing to do with the provision of basic services. It is related to housing development in the area which is the competency of the Gauteng Province Department of Housing.
