Wesselton protest suspended
Ermelo - The protest at the Mpumalanga township of Wesselton in Ermelo has been suspended, a "community leader" said on Thursday.
"We feel the message has been sent out, national leaders now know that there is a crisis in Ermelo," said Dumisani Mahaye.
A community meeting is scheduled for Monday where they expect to receive a report back from senior leaders of the ANC.
"We are waiting for their response and we will take another action on Monday depending on the response from the leaders."
He said the community was not happy about the state of service delivery in the area, unemployment and the manner in which candidates for the forthcoming municipal elections were selected.
"In ward five the community feels the screening process is not transparent because their preferred candidate is placed down on the list, automatically ruling him out of the race."
The situation was calm and police maintained a high visibility.
