The following information was supplied by the Mkhondo SAPS:
On Tuesday 25 May at 09:00, a group of approximately 25 protestors gathered on the N2 Pongola road near Grotto to walk to the Mkhondo Local Municipal offices in Market Street.
The March was apparently organised by the izinduna (community leaders) of the area and was led by COSATU. The group handed over a memorandum that stated that they need more resources such as cellular phones in order to work and salaries for the roles that they play in the community.
No incidents of violence were reported and they adjourned at approximately 11:20. Officers of the Mkhondo SAPS and Traffic Department were present to keep an eye over the proceedings and to ensure that traffic was not interrupted.
