An informal settlement march is currently underway in Cape Town CBD. See all the latest pictures here.

Cape Town - About 150 protesters have descended on the city’s CBD as part of an illegal protest against poor service delivery.

Police have already warned vendors to pack up their goods.

The police’s Captain FC Van Wyk told News24 that about 150 protesters were in the CBD but that they were being “contained” by officers. Van Wyk said there had been no violence thus far.

Marchers had already been stopped at Woodstock train station just outside the city. Marchers at other stations had also been stopped, police said.

A photo from @CapeTownFreeway shows a large group of protesters on the highway just outside Cape Town.
