Cars getting stoned in Jozi

Residents of Thembalihle in Lenasia South threw stones at passing cars and burnt tyres on the K43 road this morning, Johannesburg police said

Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said community members were unhappy about bad service delivery, saying they needed electricity and RDP houses.

He said a small group of residents sang and blocked roads at about 3am and police arrived at the scene just after 4am.

“The situation is calm because [police] are here monitoring the situation. No shots have been fired and no one has been arrested,” Makhubela said.

Johannesburg Metro police spokesman Wayne Minnaar advised motorists to avoid the K43 and rather make use of the Golden Highway.
