CAPE TOWN – The pouring rain hasn’t dampened spirits as protesters gather in the Gugulethu area.
Residents are currently protesting along Duinefontein and Govan Mbeki roads.
Authorities say that protesters are burning tyres in front of the municipal offices in the area.
A road in front of the municipal office has been blocked.
It’s unclear, at this stage, what the protest is about.
