Rocks, Burning Tyres and Barricaded Roads – Durban Hit By #protestaction

Durban woke up to the sound of protest this morning. Well, not all of it, but at least one part of Durban was blocked off this morning when protesters took to the main road, burning tyres, throwing stones and causing a bit of mayhem on the highway.

One resident, Tasneem Amod, 30, told The Daily Vox that the demonstrations started as early as 3:45am, over housing.

“Rocks were thrown on road and at building. Tyres are burning all over Inanda road and Sea Cow Lake,” Amod said.

“When they saw us at window. They threw rocks at us also.”

According to Amod, the protesters were residents of the local informal settlement and the demonstrations were over housing.
