BREAKING NEWS: March update


Clashes between marchers and police

Several tyres have been set alight in the parking lot of the Sol Plaatje Municipality by a group of between 3000 to 4000 protestors. This number is expected to increase as other groups of people, who gathered in various suburbs of the city, join those already at the Civic Centre. There is currently a heavy police presence and residents have been warned to avoid the area.

Police and protestors have clashed in Galeshewe after Nobengula street was blocked by rocks and burning tyres by a splinter group.
