Residents of Atteridgeville confront some of the ANC’s Gauteng leadership during a town hall meeting held in an attempt to restore calm to the township of Atteridgeville. Angry residents torched trucks and buses and blocked roads into various Tshwane townships after the naming of Thoko Didiza as the ANC’s Tshwane mayoral candidate. Residents shouted “No Sputla, No vote” in support of current mayor Kgosientso “Sputla” Ramokgopa.
