Cape Town - About 100 people protested about poor service delivery in Nyanga, Cape Town, on Monday morning, Western Cape police said.

Lt-Col Andre Traut said the group gathered on the corner of Lansdowne and Duinefontein roads around 3.45am, and barricaded the road with burning tyres.

“The situation is monitored, and police are on the scene to maintain law and order,” he said.

Golden Arrow bus services spokeswoman Bronwen Dyke said one of the company's buses got caught up in the spreading protest action.

“They stoned the bus and set it alight in Gugulethu, on the corner of Lansdowne and Nyl roads,” she said.

“The driver was injured. He suffered facial lacerations because a stone came through the window and hit him on the face. He is okay though.”

She could not say how much damage there was to the bus. - Sapa
