Freedom Park protests target housing corruption
Residents demand an investigation into allegations around a housing development deal.
JOHANNESBURG - Freedom Park residents in the south of Johannesburg have accused local government of rampant corruption relating to housing development.
The group has marched to the local civic centre to deliver a memorandum of grievances to Gauteng housing MEC Jacob Mamabolo.
The soaring heat hasn't stopped hundreds of residents from marching to the centre.
They are demanding a full investigation into corruption allegations around a multi-million rand housing development.
Activist organisation, Abahlali, says it's members have been physically attacked by African National Congress members who are against a probe into the housing development.
"They are involved in corrupt activities over housing and they have been handing over houses illegally. I was approached and told I could jump the queue and when I refused I became an enemy," says an organisation representative.
Mamabolo is set to to receive the memorandum.
