‘Gatvol’ pothole march in Kroonstad

2011-05-13 14:20

Residents in Kroonstad held a march under the banner “Gatvol” (fed up) to demand the repair of potholes in the area.

“The march was completely peaceful. The marchers said they were ‘gatvol with potholes’ and handed over a memorandum to the mayor,” police spokesperson Maselela Langa said today.

The SABC reported residents were mourning the “death” of the town, saying that municipal councillors had failed to attract investment.

Residents of all race groups and some in wheelchairs participated in the march.
