JOHANNESBURG - Residents of Hebron, near Ga-Rankuwa in Pretoria, have started gathering ahead of their march to the Madibeng Local Municipality.

Community members are complaining about service delivery in the township, which is on the border between the North West and Gauteng.

The protest follows demonstrations in Mothutlung, where four people were killed, allegedly by police, over water shortages.

Meanwhile, the eagerly awaited ministerial investigative report into the affairs of the Madibeng Municipality is expected to shed more light into who's behind alleged corruption and mismanagement.

The report must be tabled by council next week.

Community leader Paul Hendricks says, "The minister's report is not yet implemented and as soon as it is, we'll know exactly who those people are and maybe we'll get service."
