Matters turned violent as Democratic Alliance members arrived in Rissik Street, where ANC supporters allegedly threw bricks at police and DA members.

“Our members (police) were stoned and petrol bombed. The stones were coming from the northerly direction of Rissik Street,” said Mogale.

DA supporters dispersed, but there was still a heavy police presence in the Johannesburg CBD. Mogale said police would keep an eye on the situation and monitor ANC supporters gathered at Luthuli House.

Police were not aware of any injured people, she said.
