Cape Town - A violent protest at the Imizamo Yethu informal settlement brought Hout Bay outside Cape Town to a complete standstill on Saturday morning. Police lobbed stun grenades and teargas to disperse the angry crowd. A group of residents say they're angry at the delays in the City of Cape Town's service delivery, including its re-blocking plan. City officials have been busy with the massive re-blocking plan following a devastating fire in the township three months ago. Protesters blockaded Victoria Rd with sink plates. Traffic was blocked off from all three directions to the settlement. Picture: Jason Boud/ANA Pictures
