The protest is moving from Alexandra township to the Sandton CBD on Monday morning.
According to Gauteng Premier David Makhura, President Cyril Ramaphosa will visit Alexandra township in Northern Johannesburg on Thursday to “address the grievances of the people of Alex”.
The premier said he would meet with the Alex Shutdown Committee himself on Tuesday.
Makhura revealed this information in a tweet where he took the DA to task for “blame-shifting”.
DA Gauteng premier candidate Solly Msimanga laid charges against the ANC at the Alexandra police station on Sunday, accusing the party of “inciting violence” and orchestrating the protest to “influence the outcome” of the upcoming May 8 elections.
Leaders of the protest have made it clear they want Johannesburg executive mayor Herman Mashaba to hear their grievances, vowing to take the protest to Sandton on Monday morning if he didn’t pitch up.
Mashaba was expected to go on Friday, but said he had received no formal invitation, blaming “malicious reporting” for the expectation he would be there. In a statement, he said he would be there on April 15, a week from now.
Alexandra residents were on Monday undeterred by rain as they forged ahead with plans to march to the Sandton CBD to protest the lack of service delivery in their township.
Alexandra residents have been protesting for nearly a week, angry at what they call the failure of the government and the city council to attend to their grievances.
They say they are tired of lawlessness, poor service delivery, and the increasing number of informal structures mushrooming in the township.
