Durban - KwaZulu-Natal police were monitoring Umlazi, south of Durban, on Monday morning following violent clashes at the weekend.

"There are no problems this morning, everything is calm," Colonel Jay Naicker said.

Violent protests erupted in Umlazi on Friday with shops looted and people injured as hundreds marched in T-Section.

Two tuck shops were set alight and residents were robbed of their groceries and cash.

Seven men were arrested on Sunday for public violence.

Since there is a breakaway party from IFP called NFP, some decided to join NFP. The violence is is caused by the intolerance between the two organisations in that area…
