Alexandra service delivery protest

Callers on the open line on the Eusebius McKaiser Show debate the Alex shutdown and who is to blame between the ANC and the DA.

Who is to blame for the deteriorating state of Alexandra township in Johannesburg? Local government or the residents themselves?

On Wednesday, demonstrators took to the streets to protest against illegal structures being erected in the community.

One of the organisers of #AlexTotalShutdown, Sandile Mavundla says residents are protesting against lack of services, development, and by-law enforcement.

We have the support from all the corners of Alex fighting for service delivery.

Sandile Mavundla, Protest organiser

Callers on the open line on the Eusebius McKaiser Show discuss the different aspects of the Alex shutdown and who is to blame - the ANC and the DA?

READ: Alex protesters demand to be addressed by Herman Mashaba as tensions continue

I want to know what is the budget allocated to Sandton and what is the budget allocated to Alex. What has been spent on Alex and what has been spent in Sandton? For me, I think money is being spent in Sandton to make the nice look nicer.

I think the residents of Alex need to take responsibility for the conditions they live in. Those conditions are not created by other people. We must place a heavy responsibility on people of Alex.

John, Caller

It is unfair to blame Mashaba for the state of Alexandra. The ANC has messed up this country at the municipal level.

Costas, Caller

People like to bash the ANC. The DA and its partners EFF have the mandate to govern and service the people of Alex. They can't now hide behind the inefficiency of the ANC of the past 20 years.
