Johannesburg - Around 500 residents of Stoffelpark informal settlement in Mamelodi, Pretoria sat in the middle of a road in an apparent protest, police said on Thursday.

“There are between 400 to 500 people sitting in the middle of Tsamaya Road next to Mahube Valley,” spokesman Constable Sam Shibambo told Sapa.

He said police were still not sure what it was about as the residents did not carry any placards.

“There are no placards to say what the problem is but police are monitoring the scene,” he said.

Shibambo said there was no damage to property or acts of violence reported. He appealed to motorists to avoid the area. - Sapa
