428

Polokwane Executive Mayor Thembi Nkadimeng has undertaken to meet with residents of Seshego at her earliest convenience to discuss grievances that they want to raise with her in person.
This after a group of residents claiming to be from Seshego were forcibly removed from the council chamber during a special meeting of Polokwane municipal council on Monday after they insisted to address Nkadimeng.

Municipal security staff members remove protesters from the council chamber.

The protesters did not disclose details of their grievances and were ordered by Speaker of Council Mariri Ralefatane to leave the chamber and after refusing, officials from the municipality’s security services were ordered by Ralefatane to remove the group of approximately 20 people from the chamber.
The leaders of the group were then taken to the municipal offices where an undertaking was given that Nkadimeng would meet with them on a date to be advised, according to a protester who wished to remain anonymous.
