The N2 in Cape Town has been reopened following violent protests which led to its closure on Friday.

Western Cape traffic chief Kenny Africa said protesters threw stones at vehicles and blocked the road, shortly after 12:00.

"We have since cleared up the road, everything is back to normal," Africa added. 

The protests were focused on the area between Macassar and Khayelitsha about 50km south east of the Cape Town CBD, however Africa said it was unclear what residents were protesting about.
