It’s understood they are unhappy over blocked sewage pipes in the area.

Several roads leading to the township, including Lucas Mangope Road, have been blocked.

The police’s Matthews Nkoadi says: “Right now there are no people gathering but the road is user-friendly, although drivers need to be cautious because there are still some burning tyres.

“At the moment, our members are monitoring the situation and things are under control at this stage.”
