Cape Town – Traffic in the Oudtshoorn CBD was disrupted on Thursday morning due to protest action by taxi drivers, with protesters burning garbage in the streets.
The Oudtshoorn municipal spokesperson, Ntobeko Mangqwengqwe, said earlier several streets in the Little Karoo town had to be closed, the SABC reported.
"High Street, St Johns and Church Street in the CBD are closed. People are urged not to go into the area for their safety.
"The police and law enforcement are at the scene. Details are sketchy at the moment as to why there is such behaviour," Mangqwengqwe said
The Oudtshoorn Courant reported that, according to the organisers of the protest action, taxi drivers are disenchanted with the state of the ablution facilities at the taxi stand.
