The community of Ga-Nala took desperate steps to make their voices heard.

On Monday May 7 they closed the main road in the town at the Kingfisher Street crossing with burning tyres in a desperate attempt to make their plight heard.

“We have had numerous break-ins, rapes and assaults which we report to the police, but nothing is being done,” said Mr Bongani Thwala.
