JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng police dispersed a crowd that was protesting at the Kliptown informal settlement on Tuesday.

Eskom officials were disconnecting illegal electricity connections in the area.

Police spokesperson Nomvula Mbense said officers had to use rubber bullets to disperse the crowd.

“The police destabilised the situation and continued to monitor the area.”
