Protesters in Muldersdrift dispersed on Thursday morning after burning tyres and barricading the N14 highway, police said.

“It's calm. No-one has regrouped since police arrived. There were no injuries or arrests,” said Captain Jacob Raboroko.

It was believed that the protesters were residents of a nearby informal settlement.

They were protesting about poor service delivery.

Raboroko said firefighters were called in to extinguish the burning tyres. Rocks placed on the highway were also removed.

Police would remain on high alert throughout the day, he said. - Sapa
