Azapo to lead service delivery march

2010-11-03 09:44
Johannesburg – A march in protest over service delivery in Gauteng will be led by the Azanian People's Organisation on Wednesday morning in Johannesburg.

Members of communities in Gauteng were going to present a memorandum to premier Nomvula Mokonyane and mayor Amos Masondo, the organisation said in a statement.

"We demand an end to corruption on the housing list. We have records of several cases where an applicant is told that he has been given RDP houses, only to find that the RDP house is occupied by someone else."

"RDP" houses are named after the Reconstruction and Development Programme.

"We demand that all private land where there are informal settlements, be expropriated by the government and developed for the benefit of the residents. We demand that all residential evictions be halted," Azapo Gauteng chairperson Samore Herbstein said.

The march would start at Beyers Naude Square in the city centre at 11:00 on Wednesday morning.

Azapo said it expected 1 000 people to attend the march.
