JOHANNESBURG: The community of Westbury in Johannesburg on Monday called on the provincial government to investigate the alleged complicity of police with those responsible for the ongoing violence in the area, while the opposition Democratic Alliance accused the ruling African National Congress of failing the community.

The residents once again blockaded roads into the area, this follows the death of a woman caught in an alleged gang shoot-out last week. A child was also wounded in the incident. Residents said they have had enough of the rising levels of crime in the area.
