JOHANNESBURG - Police are monitoring the situation in Protea Glen, Soweto, after residents vowed to intensify protests.
Residents gathered on Thursday morning but police dispersed them.
They're accusing city officials of ignoring their requests for help to rebuild their houses.
Hundreds of families have been left destitute after a hail storm battered parts of Johannesburg.
Mayor Herman Mashaba has appealed for calm.
The City is committed to providing quality low cost affordable housing to our residents.— Herman Mashaba (@HermanMashaba) January 4, 2018
Building hijackers rob our residents of this quality housing. We cannot allow this to happen any longer.
Because of this, the City will oppose bail for the suspect. pic.twitter.com/7Vc7O044WR
