Durban - At least 5000 people protested over service delivery in the Nsuze area in KwaZulu-Natal on Monday, police said.

Captain Thulani Zwane said they blocked the R614 road with burning tyres and stones. There were no reports of injuries or damage, and police were keeping watch.

Nsuze is almost midway between Tongaat on the KwaZulu-Natal coast and Wartburg in the Midlands.
