Pretoria - Protesting residents have tipped over a police nyala during an overnight protest in Mooiplaats.
Roads are barricaded, tyres burnt and several vehicles damaged during the protest on the R55.
Police are monitoring the situation in Olievenhoutbosch where the R55 was blocked with rocks and tyres following an overnight protest.
The protests are related to service delivery grievances in Mooiplaats and the “illegal” occupation of RDP houses in Olivenhoutbosch, in extension 27.
The protest is centred around the allocation of about 5 000 RDP houses, with many residents claiming that people from outside their community have been given keys.
