Alexandra residents are planning another big shutdown of the township.The decision was allegedly taken Thursday night, at a community meeting over the City of Johannesburg’s move to rebuild the demolished structures along the Jukskei River. Last week ago, Red Ants destroyed 80 homes/structures that were apparently illegally erected. Sandile Mavundla, from the Alexandra Total Shutdown movement, didn’t reveal when they planned to shut down the township.
The Human Rights Commission of inquiry into Alexandra heard testimony from the Economic Freedom Fighters over its land policy on Thursday.The commission was set up to investigate possible human rights violations in the township following service delivery protests in March. The second session heard testimony from the Gauteng government and the Department of Water Affairs.
