Mpumalanga police warned motorists on Tuesday to avoid the road from Masoyi to Hazyview, as it had been barricaded by service delivery protesters.

The road had been dug up and littered with stones and burning tyres since protests started on Saturday night, said Captain Leonard Hlathi. Cars had also been damaged.

“It is not acceptable. Motorists should rather take the Kiepersol road to Hazyview.”

Those travelling to the Kruger National Park should take the Kruger Park Road in Hazyview. – Sapa
