Johannesburg - Residents in Mofolo, Soweto, protested on Tuesday morning by burning tyres and throwing rocks at passing vehicles, Johannesburg metro police said.

“Motorists are advised to use alternative routes as it is not safe to drive in the area,” spokesman Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said

The protests started at Mofolo and Vincent roads, he said.

It was not immediately clear why the residents were protesting. - Sapa
