Khutsong township is on the boil again. The residents say they will resort to a service payments boycott to force the government to yield to their demand that their area be returned to Gauteng.

The Constitutional Court last week ruled against Khutsong's reincorporation into Gauteng.

At a mass meeting on Monday, residents decided to embark on a boycott after hearing that the Constitutional Court had dismissed their application.

"We are not going to pay for services because we do not recognise the North West administration," said Merafong Demarcation Forum spokesman Jomo Mogale.

It was agreed that the forum should maintain dialogue with the ANC leadership at Luthuli House.

Last month residents marched to Luthuli House, where a memorandum of demands was delivered to ANC general-secretary Gwede Mantashe.

Mogale told Sowetan yesterday that residents had "high hopes that the ANC of today, unlike the one which was kicked out in Polokwane", was willing to listen to them.

Khutsong's high school pupils are still boycotting mid-year exams.
