CAPE TOWN - Law enforcement officials are still clearing Koeberg Road in Du Noon where angry demonstrators threw rubble during a protest against poor service delivery.

Earlier, police had to use stun grenades to disperse demonstrators.

Most of the rubble is from the construction work of the MyCiti bus route that is being stalled.

Thousands of residents marched to the local municipality where they handed over a memorandum demanding better service delivery.

Officials at the municipal offices however say the community must wait 21 days for a response.

The angry residents have warned if they do not hear from the city within 21 days they will continue to cause havoc within the community.

Meanwhile, Western Cape Traffic Chief Kenny Africa says they are keeping a watchful eye on the area.

"All roads are open. There is still a high presence of police and traffic officials. Otherwise we have everything under control."

The country has been rocked by violent service delivery protests in recent months.

Government has warned residents to obey the law while protesting following several incidents where municipal property was destroyed.
