Pretoria - Protesters in Olievenhoutbosch in Centurion, outside Pretoria, had dispersed by Tuesday afternoon, Gauteng police said.

“All the affected roads have been reopened,” Lt-Col Lungelo Dlamini said.

Residents began protesting along the R55 on Tuesday morning. Dlamini said at the time residents had gathered and blocked the route.

“They did not use anything to block the road, they just gathered in the middle of the road.”

He said it was not yet clear what they were protesting about.

“Police are monitoring the protest. So far no violence was reported.”
