The residents of Cottondale near Acornhoek are on protest again. This, they say, is due to the empty promises of a tar road construction.
The residents say the mayor came and introduced the contractor for the road; “The mayor came and handed over a contractor for the tar road, but then even today nothing has been done about the road. We want to know, where is the tar road?” one community member said.
The protesters further accused the Executive Mayor of Bushbuckridge Cllr Sylvia Nxumalo of misleading the public for votes.
They further said that they will not vote next week if the situation remains the same.
