“We have taken a decision to recall honourable Mr Linda Dhlamini along with the troika,” Mr Muzi Chirwa, Gert Sibande District Executive Mayor, said.
Ms Mhlongo-Ntshangase was put on special leave and the decision about the mayor will be made on Saturday.
The ANC representative and Dipaleseng Mayor, Mr Mafunda Makhubo, received the memorandum from the demonstrators on 12 March.
Those present at the meeting claimed they heard gunshots.
SANCO said they are only there to ensure that services are delivered to the people.
Isiphingo locals said they have not had water for almost three days while Rooikoppen and Ext 6 have been without electricity.
The municipal manager, Ms Gugulethu Mhlongo-Ntshangase, and employees were locked in a meeting regarding disruption of duties, following the businesses protest.
They arrived at about 6am and locked the municipal gate, barring entry to employees and denying any form of service.
“If you have a problem with the municipality, deal with the municipality, not innocent people,” was one of the comments.
The municipal buildings in town and Sakhile were closed as well as the traffic department.
