Protestors to shut down Voortrekker Road

2018-09-25 06:00

Following a community meeting on Thursday last week, residents of Kensington and Factreton have resolved to totally shut down Voortrekker Road today.

The protestors are planning to target 4th and 18th avenues from 05:00 to 10:00.

Other communities will be blocking main roads such as the N1, N2, Jakes Gerwel and M5 according to the residents’ statement. “We need to just add that this is in no way a politically motivated protest. We are saying that this is not our heritage.”
