Johannesburg - Teargas was fired at protesters in Bethanie near Brits on Monday morning, North West police said.

Captain Adle Myburgh said protesters started preventing people at the local taxi rank from going to work, from around 03:00.

Police were called in and teargas was used.

"It was a service delivery protest. Once police intervened, negotiations ensued between protest leaders and police."

The situation had been brought under control by noon.

      Please can everybody make sure they do not vote for the ANC we must make a stand against these dictators. If you should decide you don't want to vote, the ANC will automatically get your vote. i don't care who you vote for, as long as it is not the ANC. But please whatever you do, do not decide not to vote because the ruling party automatically gets those votes please please please

    If it is an illegal protest the only discussion needed is leave or be locked up. To protest you must apply for permission a day or 2 in advance.
