Joe Slovo residents are once again up in arms after they stormed out of a community meeting, to discuss the second phase of the controversial N2 Gateway.

The angry residents walked out of the Langa Sports Complex last night after they found out that Housing MEC Richard Dyantyi would not be attending the meeting.

According to reports residents waited for more than an hour before the announcement was made.

Residents wanted to make their voices heard to the MEC about the problem of adequate housing in the province.

Dyantyi’s spokesperson Vusi Tshose says "the MEC was on his way to the meeting but urgently had to attend a family crisis”.

Tshose added “the meeting would be rescheduled, but a specific date could not be given”.

Last week Dyantyi met with the residents of the N2 gateway where they had the opportunity to list their grievances to the MEC.
