Residents of Thembisa in Ekurhuleni have gathered at the Mehlareng Stadium after this week's violent protests.
Mayor Tania Campbell is expected to give residents feedback on their grievances about service delivery, electricity tariffs and billing.
Thembisa community forum spokesperson Xolani Mnisi said earlier he hoped the meeting would be successful and help address the issues, though the mayor won't immediately bring solutions.
“We hope and pray that she will address our issues because we have been interacting with them for a long time. We saw what happened on Monday [when residents took to the streets] and we don't want that to continue.
“We need her commitment that she will deal with our issues and give our community the confidence of how she would deal with those issues,” he said.
