According to reports by our sister paper, the Northern Natal Courier, the enraged and frustrated community members say “they were promised houses, schools and tar roads among other things, but that none of the promises were kept by the municipality…”

 

Amid the chaos, police presence was spread thin as another violent protest was underway outside Dundee Junior Secondary School.
