Some community members have accused police officials of using rubber bullets and teargas to prevent them from protestingand burning tyres.

The newly appointed executive mayor of the municipality, Rose Thabanchu is expected to be in the same township as she continues with her Mayoral Roadshow programme on Wednesday, 13 October.
