Alexandra residents have prevented Joburg Mayor Herman Mashaba from chairing the Integrated Development Plan session that was meant to take place in the Johannesburg township on Monday night.
Residents gathered at the Malboro community hall but refused to allow the meeting to get underway, with many singing songs.
They only listened when their leaders handed over a memorandum demanding services and the eradication of the mushrooming informal tin houses and illegal land grabs.
“You politicians must stop pointing fingers at each other we want service delivery,” the memorandum said.
After the memorandum was read, angry residents broke into chants, and booed Mashaba.
Some even went to the extent of pelting him and his team with papers and empty water bottles.
