They are demanding the removal of municipal manager, Thembeka Cibane, and are accusing her administration of nepotism and tender corruption.

Picketers say they've been trying to speak to authorities on the matter, but their calls have not been heeded.

A spokesperson for the protests, Wonder Potgieter, said the demonstrators don't want to be councillors but want the municipality to work effectively for its constituents.

"We've got to clean our house first before we tell people to continue voting for the ANC," Potgieter said.
