The ANC Youth League will shut down Cape Town by mobilising thousands of supporters to block the main highways in and out of the city.
The Daily Voice on Monday revealed details of how the protest leaders are planning to put Cape Town on lockdown this week.
Youth League leaders will cause traffic gridlock mayhem by taking over strategic parts of the N1 and N2.
Buses and taxis will also be taken off the road - meaning no one will be able to get to work on the day.
And thousands of fedup residents from Khayelitsha, Langa, Mfuleni and other townships will be mobilised for a massive march on the city.
Youth League supporters, the ANC Women’s League, Cosatu and numerous taxi associations will also take part in the unprecedented mass action.
The ANCYL has given the Western Cape Premier Helen Zille until tomorrow (Tuesday) to give a “satisfactory” response to an array of demands.
These include a detailed timeline for better housing, sanitation and basic toilet facilities.
The battle lines have been clearly drawn ahead of the day of mass action.
ANCYL regional committee member, Loyiso Nkohla, warns all hell will break loose if Zille responds with “just more promises”.
“All we want is a positive response,” Nkohla tells the Daily Voice.
“But if we do not get that, we will not back down or retreat from the statements we have made to make this province ungovernable.
“It is those people who burn traffic lights that we want on our side on the day.”
But the City warns it will order cops to “take whatever action needs to be taken” if the protesters break the law.
“If the Youth League does respond with violence then we have law enforcement officers to deal with them,” Zille’s spokesman Zak Mbhele told the Daily Voice.
