JOHANNESBURG - Community members in Protea Glen have barricaded a road in a service delivery protest near the area which was devastated by recent storms in Gauteng.

The police’s Kay Makhubela says they are monitoring the situation.

“Community members of Protea Glen Ext 6 blocked the roads towards Soweto in protest over service delivery. So far, the police are monitoring the situation. No damage to property has been reported yet.”
