Around 400 protesting people from Majakaneng village near Mooinooi in North West burnt tyres and a bus on the Old Rustenburg road on Monday morning, police said.

“They allegedly complained about the water and electricity supply in their area,” said Brigadier Thulani Ngubane.

“The community barricaded the Old Rustenburg road with burning tyres and also burnt a bus. No one was injured.”

The protest was believed to have taken place around 5.30am. The situation was currently quiet and public order police were monitoring it, he said.
