Johannesburg - About 1000 people staged a service delivery protest on the N14 highway on Friday, North West police said.

“The residents were taking their anger with the municipality to the streets,” Captain Pelonomi Makau said.

The protests took place on the national road between Coligny and Ventersdorp.

Makau said residents of the Monotomosetlha informal settlement were promised - by the Ditsobotla Local Municipality - that they would be moved to another area because their shacks flooded when it rained.

This had not happened, she said.

Earlier, the residents had blocked the N14 with large rocks, and the road had to be closed. It was later re-opened.
