A youth in what appears to be school uniform throws a rock at what’s left of the Grabouw traffic department. Some schools were closed due to the protest.
Thousands of residents from the newly named Siyanyanzela informal settlement and surrounding areas in Grabouw set a vehicle alight and burnt down the local traffic department yesterday. They were protesting evictions and calling for better housing. Residents blocked the main road forcing traffic officers to close down a section of the N2 highway.
