Police said the Thembelihle informal settlement in Lenasia is calm on Monday despite threats by residents to continue protesting over poor service delivery.

The area was hit by violent protests last week.

However, the police's Mbulaheni Netshivodza said the threat of more mass action has not materialised.

"People are going to work, children are going to school and cars are passing here. There are no signs showing any protest. The local police are patrolling the area and we are monitoring the situation at this stage," he said.
