Protests continue in WC
More protests has been reported on the N2 between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay.
CAPE TOWN - More roads were closed on Tuesday night due to ongoing protest action in the Western Cape.
The N2 between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay was closed to all traffic just after 7pm after protestors blocked the road with burning tyres.
Provincial traffic Chief Kenny Africa said protests have not only impacted traffic, but also damaged the province's roads.
"Our major problems were on the N2, just outside Knysna, the N2 in Grabouw and Sir Lowry's Pass where it meets with the N2 and Mew Way, Khayelitsha just past Borchards Quarry toward Cape Town"
The N2 has since been reopened.
Meanwhile, some Khayelitsha residents said the ANC Youth League had nothing to do with their protests.
Protesting residents of B-M Section recently burned tyres and rubbish on Lansdowne Road.
Protesters are demanding better housing and lavatory facilities.
On Tuesday, scores of municipal staff under the eye of heavily armed police removed debris on the busy road.
A protesting resident said the area had little or no service.
"I want a proper toilet, I want water, and I want housing. Crime is also high and no one is safe."
A total of four people have died during the protests.
