Cape Town – The City’s law enforcement maintained a strong presence in the early hours of Wednesday morning after protests broke out in Blackheath.

“We are unsure what the protest is about we have law enforcement on scene and police we understand a group of demonstrators are burning tyres in the street,” said law enforcement spokesperson, Wayne Le Roux.

On Monday the Blackheath Industrial Area came to a standstill when hundreds of Happy Valley residents blocked Wimbledon Road with burning tyres. 

The protest believed to be over the delivery of basic began just before 5am.

The protest led to businesses in the area not being accessible as well as MyCiti and Golden Arrow buses not being able to leave the depots. 

Thousands of Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain MyCiti bus commuters were left stranded as their busses were delayed.
