Durban - Two people were arrested after roads were blocked and a car set alight during protests in KwaZulu-Natal on Sunday and Monday, police said.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Thulani Zwane said service delivery protests in Ntshawini near KwaDukuza on Sunday night led to two arrests on Monday morning.

"A car was also set alight in the area. Two suspects were arrested and charged for public violence this morning. They were blocking the road with burning tyres and stones."

Protesters in Reservoir Hills in Durban targeted vehicles and burnt tyres on Monday, Zwane said.

"Protestors are throwing stones at passing vehicles and we [are warning] drivers to take extra precautions when driving in those areas."

Various roads were blocked by protesters with burning tyres and stones, Zwane added.

He said police were still monitoring both areas on Monday.
