The speaker of Msunduzi Municipality, Eunice Majola, is expected to respond to the demands made by residents from the Jika Joe Informal Settlement by 2pm on Thursday.
Residents brought the City to a standstill on Thursday morning and blocked the N3 which caused heavy traffic in the CBD.
They are demanding RDP houses or to be moved into flats they say were initially built for them.
Chairperson of the Abahlali Basemjondolo at the Jika Joe branch, Zodwa Kweyama, said they would wait for a written and signed response.
“What has been our biggest issue over the years was trusting words from our leaders. When we try to do follow ups, we are always asked to provide proof,” said Kweyama.
She added they have heard that the flats are now only for employed people.
“When they started building the flats, we were told they were for Jika Joe residents but when they were almost finished they said we must apply for them.
During the protest in the morning, a man was shot allegedly by taxi drivers from the Masukwana Taxi Rank and a woman in her fifties was assaulted.
