JOHANNESBURG - The Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) will be closely monitoring roads that will be affected by a march by Alexandra residents on Monday.

JMPD spokesman Wayne Minnaar says the M1, Marlboro Drive and Grayston Drive are likely to be most affected. 

"The time is not specific because it's not a formal protest, so for us it's about the wait-and-see," he said.

Alexandra threatened to bring Sandton to a standstill on Monday, after agreeing to embark on a second total shutdown at a community meeting at the weekend. 

They claim Joburg Mayor Herman Mashaba has failed to respond to their grievances.

Residents say they are tired of lawlessness, poor service delivery and the increasing number of informal structures in the area.
