Service delivery protests in South Africa occur almost one every second day.

This is according statement released by the Municipal IQ’s Municipal Hotspots Monitor.

Gauteng and the Eastern Cape have emerged as the most protest-ridden province for the first 11 months of 2013, accounting to 25% of major service delivery protest apiece.

Karen Heese, Economist at Municipal IQ argues: “What is worrying about the Eastern Cape is that protests did not only take place in urban areas stress by in-migration, like those in Uitenhage last month, but they were spread to smaller towns like Cookhouse and Port St Johns and more remote areas like Matolweni”.
