As the country prepares for a local government election in August, Cutting Edge takes a look at service delivery issues and voter registration protests in Denver and Tlokwe.
At the beginning of the year, residents of Denver hostel embarked on a violent protest. They were unhappy about the recent re-demarcation that is said to move one of the Inkatha Freedom party hostels in ward 65 to ward 118, a Democratic ward.
We also visit Tlokwe in Potchefstroom where Independent candidates have taken the IEC to court. The constitutional court ruled that the bi-elections held in Tlokwe in 2013 were not free and fair. Bad service delivery seems to be one of the main issues affecting this area.
Watch Cutting Edge Thursdays at 21:30 on SABC 1.
