JOHANNESBURG – Johannesburg City Manager Ndivhoniswani Lukhwareni made remarks in the South African Human Rights Commission's (SAHRC) inquiry into the recent wave of protests in Alexandra.

The inquiry, which began on Friday, heard what the city has done for the area and some of the difficulties it faced.

Lukhwareni told the panel that informal settlements only receive basic services as opposed to the affluent suburbs that receive additional services because they are able to pay for it.

He says there have been more than 200 informal settlements in Johannesburg and most of them have existed for more than five years.

Lukhwareni says Alexandra was a difficult place to serve because of her spatial planning.
