The demands included re-gravelling of the roads, increased water tankers, and the toilets to be increased.
Speaking to the station, City of Tshwane spokesperson Selby Bokaba explained what transpired.
“There was a group of community dwellers that descended at our Akasia offices earlier this morning and they forced officials out of their offices, locked the gate, and demanded to be addressed by a political principal.
“Basically, our officials couldn’t exit or enter their offices and hence I say let us not call it a hostage drama.
“They basically demand three things. One, they need want re-gravelling of the roads, they want the water tankers to be increased, and they want the toilets to be increased.
“In the main, they are saying they want the road to be re-gravelled especially after rainfall we experienced yesterday. They say some of the roads are bad and are battling to enter and exit the area.”
