Residents of Malamulele, near Thohoyandou, have marched to the offices of the Thulamela local municipality to demand that the town gets its own local municipality.
Malamulele South African Civic Organisation (SANCO) chairperson, Foster Mtshabi, has been quoted as saying "We want to break away from Thulamela and have our own municipality. We have the support of the Malamulele Sunrise Committee, which was formed to ensure better service delivery in the area."
Mtshabi, who criticises the Thulamela local municipality for developing Thohoyandou while neglecting Malamulele, said that the latter residents are tired of broken promises made by the municipality.
