27 Protestors have been charged with public violence after burning down the home of local Counselor, Thandi Ndlovu, during a protest that started on Monday.

It is estimated that 5000 Community members at Copesville, Kwa Zulu Natal have been protesting.

The protest reached boiling point on Tuesday morning when residents blocked roads, burnt tyres, stones and metal barriers.

Residents also burnt down two residential homes and local clinic.

Protesters are demanding better service delivery saying they have been neglected by Ndlovu.

Residents also complain that they do not have access to public transport in the area

One of the residents, Ayanda Ngcobo , is reported to have written a letter to the Msunduzi and uMgungundlovu District municipalities to address the matter but says there had been no response.
