Residents trickled to the meeting point of San Kopano community centre ahead of the march which was scheduled for 9.30am.

Alexandra residents were on Monday undeterred by rain as they forged ahead with plans to march to the neighbouring wealthy area of Sandton to protest the lack of service delivery in their township.

Residents trickled to the meeting point of San Kopano community centre ahead of the march which was scheduled for 9.30am.

Johannesburg metro police spokesperson Wayne Minnaar said the department was geared up for the protest, with a large contingent of officers deployed along the main routes to Sandton as well as on minor roads.

Taxi operators said they did not expect the march to affect their movement.

Alexandra residents have been protesting for nearly a week, angry at what they call the failure of the government and the city council to attend to their grievances.

They say they are tired of lawlessness, poor service delivery, and the increasing number of informal structures mushrooming in the township.
