Protesters demanded greater service delivery from the government during the march, which began at Solomon Mahlangu Square, continued through Mamelodi West Clinic, and finished at Mamelodi West Police Station.
Some police officials in the Mamelodi West and East police stations were accused of corruption by the marching people. In terms of health-care services, the protesters requested that clinics around Pretoria be open 24 hours a day, and that the number of healthcare workers be expanded to cope with the workload.
The community claims that they have lost a large number of their faithful members, that children are dying, that people are being harassed by gangsters, and that when you denounce them to the police, the criminals attack you the next day.
They must be placed under administration so that the national police commissioner can send units from outside Mamelodi police stations to work in the area because the people of Mamelodi are afraid since they no longer trust the local police,” one person stated.
