CAPE TOWN - A group of people on Wednesday marked Mandela Day by protesting against mob justice outside Parliament.

Former president Nelson Mandela turns 94 and people around the world are celebrating with him.

However, a group of Capetonians from all walks of life demonstrated for 67 minutes to oppose necklacing and vigilante justice in townships.

The protesters placed tyres around their necks as they danced and chanted outside the National Assembly.

Khayelitsha resident Nkwame Sedile said he is determined to persuade authorities to bring an end to the ongoing violence.

At least 14 suspected criminals have been killed by angry residents over the past few months, with 11 incidents reported in Khayelitsha.

Sedile said they were not deterred by the small turnout.
