Limberg concedes that other issues such as service delivery have also been flagged by the community of Imizamo Yethu in previous months.
Law enforcement's have been placed at the protest to try and calm the already tense protest action says Limberg.
Limberg says the city is in the first phase of the re-blocking project. She says the delay has been largely because of the terrain they are working from.
