They think by taking this action, it will maybe ring a loud bell in the ears of those responsible for delivering the services in the area! Protesters in KwaZulu Natal have decided to take the matter into their own hands by digging a road over the government’s failure to provide them with water and electricity.
The residents teamed up and met at the road in eBhovini between Pomeroy and the Mozana turn off this morning and started digging in the middle of the road.
They dug a number of holes in the two-way traffic road that will make it difficult for vehicles to move. So deep are the holes that they actually reached the stones underneath the gravel and the tar.

This is how some South Africans have reacted to this new form of protesting by fellow citizens:
DOM! How stupid can they be? Tomorrow they want government to fix what theyʼve broke down. Jeeez this is nonsense 😑

I never completely get this – how does damaging a road assist in accelerating service delivery?

I am still waiting for someone to make understand the logic behind such behaviour,how do damage what you have in the name of getting what you don’t have

Yes it’s the Demand-Destroy-Deny mentality. Sad state of mind
