Police and Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) officers are monitoring the Princess informal settlement in Roodepoort on Tuesday morning following a night of violent protesting.
Protesters torched a truck, barricading the Albertina Sisulu Road with burning tyres and rocks on Monday night.
It’s unclear what residents are protesting over.
JMPD’s Wayne Minaar says: “Albert Sisulu Road remains closed this morning due to the violent protests last night. A truck was torched and there’s still a lot of debris and rocks on that road. It’s not safe for motorists to drive past this morning. Motorists will have to use alternative routes.”
