CAPE TOWN - Dunoon residents say community protests have been disrupting their lives.
Shops and schools in the area were closed due to violent demonstrations late last night.
Most demonstrators moved the protest to the Cape Town Civic Centre this morning, but some continued their action against poor service delivery in Dunoon.
The MyCiTi bus service in Du noon, Table View and surrounding areas had to be temporarily halted today due to the violent demonstrations.
When Eyewitness News was on the scene early this morning, more than 1,000 protesting residents blocked roads and burned tyres.

Residents who were not protesting were forced to stay out of work because no buses or taxis were operating and many stayed indoors out of fear of intimidation.
"I couldn't come to work and it's terrible because I only found out about it this morning," said one resident.
Protesters have handed over a memorandum of grievances to the City of Cape Town.
