Vaal Rand police yesterday foiled a planned protest over poor service delivery after being informed that councillors would be targeted.

Captain Veli Mcera said that a community leader at Boiketlong informal settlement, in Sebokeng, said in a radio interview , the protest would be as violent as the September 3 1984 high rent protest in which councillors were attacked.

"After hearing that we declared the protest illegal," he said. - Ntwaagae Seleka
