Mokhesang denied claims that the protest was violent.

"We are not sure what the motive behind the protest is. We also don't know if it has to do with service delivery in the area," he said.

No arrests had been made.

The R550, Nala Road and Sonnestraal Road are currently blocked.

Motorists are advised to use alternative routes.
