Pretoria - Impala Road near Protea in Soweto had to be closed on Wednesday morning after Tshepisong residents protested and burnt tyres, Johannesburg metro police said.

“The situation was getting out of hand and dangerous for motorists to drive through, officers had to close the road,” said spokesman Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar.

He advised motorists to use Ontdekkers road and the N12.

It was not immediately known why they were protesting. - Sapa
