Protesters set tyres alight and blocked roads in Kamesh, Uitenhage, on Friday, Eastern Cape police said.

“I would not say it is taxi violence, but there is a protest going on,” Captain Gerda Swart said.

There had been no reports of violence.

The Eastern Cape education department urged school principals to reschedule tests if they were affected by a province-wide taxi strike on Friday, AlgoaFM reported.

Police were monitoring the area.
