IN PHOTOS: The #AlexTotalShutdown so far

On Tuesday morning residents from Alexandra shut most of the entrances to the township in protest against bad policing and decay of the township. 

As early as 4am, residents had already barricaded roads with burning tyres and rocks. Police had to be deployed at various points of the township to prevent the protest from becoming violent.
