- Slight drop off in 2015 protest figures, with absolute and relative fall for Gauteng0.21 MB
2015 is off the high peaks of 2014, as well as that of 2012.
Karen Heese, Economist at Municipal IQ argues that “while the number of service delivery protests dropped slightly last year, other protest activity, such as #FeesMustFall is not factored into these calculations.
Furthermore, protest activity remains within the high range recorded since 2012 and suggests that it is unlikely that the phenomenon will abate in the near future as South Africans use protest activity to vent unhappiness with a range of state players, including municipalities”.
