Community gives municipality 7 days to respond to grievances

CAPE TOWN - The Wittedrift community, near Plettenberg Bay, has given the Bitou Municipality seven days to respond to its service delivery grievances.

WATCH: Disgruntled community members pledge to stand together.
The crowd barricaded roads and pelted police vehicles with stones.
Municipality Mayor Memory Booysen said they planned to meet with the group later this week.
"The other issues like toilets for informal settlements … there is a new informal settlement which is on private land and they're demanding services, which is one of those things which is very difficult to implement when it's on private property. "
