JOHANNESBURG - KwaZulu-Natal police are monitoring iSithebe, north of the province, after two days of protests which have led to more than 100 arrests.

The demonstrations turned violent with residents burning cars and property this week.

They're angry over a lack of service delivery as well as the selection of candidates for the upcoming municipal elections.

The police's Thulani Zwane says, "They are complaining over service delivery as well as the candidates for the next elections. The police are still in the area, monitoring the situation."
