Durban - As sporadic protest flared up in the country ahead of voting on Wednesday, residents of Siyanda township in the north of Durban on Monday night protested, vowing to disrupt voting if their demands are not met.
The residents were again seen on Tuesday morning gathering near the township’s taxi rank in anticipation of waging a fresh protest.
On Monday night, about 800 residents, mainly unemployed youth blockaded Dumisani Makhaye Drive which links KwaMashu to Pinetown and Newlands East and West with burning tyres and hurled stones at passing vehicles and people.
No major injuries were reported.
One resident said that they have not had water for more than ten days.
