Atteridgeville residents threaten to burn Kgosientso Ramokgopa's parent's home
The group accused Ramokgopa of rigging the selection of candidates ahead of the local government elections.
JOHANNESBURG - Police have fired rubber bullets in Atteridgeville in Pretoria where a group of protesters gathered outside Tshwane Mayor Kgosientso Ramokgopa's parent's home.
It's understood the group is accusing the mayor of rigging the selection of candidates ahead of the local government elections later this year.
Community members are also apparently threatening to burn down the mayor's house if he does not listen to their grievances.
Community leader Gordon Rabodiba says they are demanding that the mayor come and address residents.
"He has chosen his own people and how is that fair for the opposing side auditing membership? They are going to rig votes and that has happened [before]."
