PRETORIA - Emotions ran high as some families of the Life Esidimeni victims marched on the Gauteng premier David Makhura's office.

They say they the provincial government's reneged on its commitment to compensate them as prescribed by former chief justice Dikgang Moseneke.

Each family of those affected is owed R1.2-million in restitution.

Government insists it met the deadline to compensate 134 families who were represented by NGOs at the arbitration process.

But the claims of the 10 remaining victims' families -- who had no one acting for them -- are still being vetted or processed.

The crowd also marched to Luthuli House, demanding a meeting with President Cyril Ramaphosa.

Instead, they got a member of the National Executive Committee.

ANC head of Presidency Zizi Kodwa said he would get in touch with the premier to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

Government says it remains committed to settling the claims as soon as possible.

But that is subject to certain legal requirements being complied with, something that could result in more delays.
