Johannesburg - Four people were injured during a protest at Heuningklip in the Cradle of Humankind, it was reported on Saturday.

Residents started protesting early on Saturday morning over land that they say was promised to them in 2009 by Mogale City Mayor Koketso Seerane, Eyewitness News said.

Protesters burned tyres and wood, barricaded roads and clashed with police.

EWN also reported that a man who was wounded on his back says he was shot by police.

Police restored calm to the area but residents have vowed to continue protesting until their grievances are addressed.
