CAPE TOWN - At least two learner protests organised by Equal Education have erupted in Cape Town.

Metro police and traffic officials are on the scene.

Some students have explained the reasons for the protest.

"We demand safety, sanitation and one school, one social worker in our schools. And also the accommodation of learners with disabilities."
