Informal dwellers march for houses

About 600 Mamelodi informal settlement residents have marched to the President Thabo Mbeki's office in protest against lack of service delivery and housing. They were holding placards reading "No stand no vote" and "No water, no electricity, no life".

The residents say they have been living in shacks for 16 years and have been promised land and Reconstruction and Development Programme (RDP) houses. SABC
