"We do not have water for five weeks now, the councillor is not helping us. She refused to attend a community meeting stating that she is not our councillor," he said.
He added that the community suspected there was a hit squad killing vocal people in the community. "Last week Thembile Jali was shot dead after he received a cellphone call to meet someone, he was shot right here on this road," he said pointing at the spot where Jali was killed.
Jali was buried at the weekend in the Eastern Cape.
The community has also called for the recruitment process at nearby mines to be transparent so that they all have an opportunity to apply for jobs. They are also demanding a high school be built in the area.
