Johannesburg - Motorists and commuters have been warned to avoid Klipspruitvalley and Amatage Road in Soweto on Wednesday due to protest action that started in the early hours of the morning.
Several routes were gridlocked as burning tyres blocked streets at Mzimhlophe.
Johannesburg Metro Police spokesperson Wayne Minnaar said the residents were complaining because they had no electricity.
“Motorists can use Reverend Frank Modise road or Chris Hani road as alternative routes,” he said.
Residents were complaining that they have had to go for four days without electricity and they were tired.
