Protesters go on rampage in Randfontein

randfonteinPolice have dispersed a crowd of protesters who have gone on the rampage in Randfontein, west of Johannesburg.

The residents of Mohlakeng extension five are demanding services from the municipality.

Earlier residents barricaded roads with burning tires and stones, however calm has now been restored.

The council, the claim, has not provided them with electricity, water and sanitation because of a legal dispute over the sale of land.

More than 1 000 home owners have bought stands in the area since 2006.

But the Randfontein municipality says homes were built on the land without permission. – eNCA
