Since Friday 18 May, residents have expressed their anger and frustration towards the municipality and its mayor by erecting informal dwellings on a disused sports field, almost right in the centre of Rheenendal. Various police units were still deployed in the area on Wednesday 23 May. More than a year ago, on 23 January 2017, the community had reverted to protest action over the same issues and "empty promises". Shortly after, in February 2017, the Keurhoek Housing Committee was formed to try to address these issues.
