Tshwane residents want houses, water and sewage cleared in their townships.

This story has been updated.

Despite the low turnout, residents of Tshwane are picketing at the Union Buildings to hand over a memorandum of demands to the president. Eyewitness News reporter Edwin Ntshidi says the protester's primary concern is the city's billing system.

Speaking to Clement Manyathela on the Xolani Gwala show, Ntshidi says the residents say they have handed a memorandum to the local government three times without reply.

They say there is a lot of criminal activity in the city centre and the police should step in.

They are also saying they are tired of foreign nationals who are building stalls in the city and doing business.

Ntshidi says they also want houses, water and sewage cleared in their townships.

Speaking to Joanne Joseph on the Afternoon drive, Ntshidi says the protesters are demanding for someone senior to receive the memorandum at the Union Buildings.

They are saying they want Ramaphosa or David Mabuza to accept the memorandum.
