CAPE TOWN - Police are on Monday monitoring a service delivery protest on Duinefontein Road near Gugulethu.
The police's André Traut said he has received reports that about 1,000 people have taken to the streets.
He said officers were monitoring the situation
“Police are deployed in the area to maintain law and order. Approximately 1,000 people are causing disruptions. We believe it is a service delivery protest.”
Meanwhile, the community of Botrivier in the Overberg vowed it would take to the streets again if the DA-led municipality fails to deliver basic services.
Last week, clashes broke out between the community and police after residents staged a protest against the Theewaterkloof municipality.
The local councillor and MEC Anton Bredell arranged a meeting for Sunday afternoon, but none of them turned up.
Community leader Wilfred Herman said they want the councillor removed from office.
“The community is sick and tired of this councillor who is saying how she loves this community.”
Herman said the community's now had enough.
“Botrivier community is sick and tired of the DA who is playing politics. The councillor’s phone is off and she does not answer any calls from us.”
