Police have fired stun grenades at MyCiti bus drivers on strike in the Cape Town CBD.

Dismissed MyCiti employees gathered outside the Cape Town Civic Centre on Thursday, hoping that their issues regarding the escalated strike would be raised.

Police escorted the protesters away from the Civic Centre towards the minibus taxi rank, before an exchange of stun grenades and rocks took place.

Protesters dispersed shortly thereafter.
