Johannesburg - Voter registration got off to a slow start in Boiketlong informal settlement in Sebokeng, south of Johannesburg, on Saturday.

"It has been slow. People have not been coming in large numbers. So far 50 people have registered to vote," said IEC official Titus Maja.

"We started late because we were afraid to come into the community and we had to ask police to escort us."

Police monitored Boiketlong Primary School where voter registration was taking place.

Residents of Boiketlong took to the streets on Wednesday demanding decent housing.

One person was shot and killed during the protest.
