Some 300 Congolese nationals protested outside the Hillbrow Magistrate's Court on Monday as some of their countrymen appeared in court for public violence.
The protesters were being dispersed by police and traffic was backed up around Joe Slovo Drive, said Superintendent Wayne Minnaar.
“They did not apply to have a protest so we are escorting them out.”
On Friday, police arrested 150 supporters of rival Congolese political factions for public violence linked to the recent election in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
They were arrested after a series of clashes between expatriate supporters of Congolese President Joseph Kabila and opposition leader Etienne Tshisekedi. - Sapa
