Johannesburg - Protesters barricaded the Old Pretoria Road and the N4 highway in Majakaneng near Brits, North West police said on Friday.

“The protesters are angry over an apparent lack of water in their area, (and) motorists were being directed to use alternative routes,” Colonel Sabata Mokgwabone said.

Protesters were splitting into groups and burning tyres along the roads, he said.

On Thursday, protesters looted shops owned by foreigners in retaliation to police shooting rubber bullets at them, said resident Pule Rakomane.

A cement truck was torched by residents demanding better service delivery on Thursday. - Sapa
