Johannesburg - A mess, a very big mess.
This is how the Roodeport SAPS spokesperson Warrant Officer Nohlanhla Khumalo explained the situation on the roads after some residents took to the streets, blocking traffic in and out of the West Rand town on Friday morning.
Khumalo said the protesters are believed to have taken to the streets around 3am blocking several of them with burning tyres.
When people left for work in the morning, they realised that they could not get in and out of Roodepoort.
"They blocked all the roads that I even struggled to get to work...it was a mess. There was so much traffic as people were unaware of what was going on.
