They think with this line of action, it might sound a bell in the ears of those involved in delivering the services in the area. Protesters in KwaZulu-Natal have taken a decision to handle the matter themselves by digging a road because of the government’s failure in providing water and electricity to them.
The residents came together and gathered this morning at the road in eBhovini between Pomeroy & the Mozana turn off.
They started digging in the middle of the road.
They dug several holes in the two-way traffic road that will hinder the free movement of vehicles. The holes are actually deep up to the stones underneath the gravel and the tar.

I never completely get this – how does damaging a road assist in accelerating service delivery?

Yes it’s the Demand-Destroy-Deny mentality. Sad state of mind
