- There were renewed protests across Cape Town on Wednesday.
- The protests were in Philippi East, Kraaifontein and Hout Bay.
- Officials demolishing structures on a tract of land in Bloekombos also came under attack.
A number of people have been arrested in a fresh wave of protests around Cape Town on Wednesday.
A Golden Arrow bus and a small business were torched, and stones were thrown at the police.
In Philippi East and Kraaifontein, amid burning barricades and stone throwing, 20 people were arrested.
The protest in Philippi East is understood to have been by residents of the Siyangena informal settlement, who complained over not having electricity.
Further afield in Hout Bay, about 50 women blocked roads to highlight that residents of the suburb, Imizamo Yethu, had no jobs.
Police spokesperson Brigadier Novela Potelwa also said there was a heavy police presence along Maroela and Old Paarl Roads in Kraaifontein, where the City of Cape Town's law enforcement officials were demolishing structures on a piece of land in Bloekombos.
"During the demolition of structures by law enforcement officials, tyres were burnt and police pelted with stones," she said.
Nine people were arrested and police would continue to monitor the situation.
Earlier, the Western Cape Human Settlements MEC, Tertius Simmers, said it had cost the department R18 million over the past month to prevent the illegal occupation of housing units and vacant land earmarked for development.
Community Safety MEC Albert Fritz also expressed concern over the ongoing protests in St Helena Bay.
