One group of protesters have marched to the municipality to hand over a memorandum demanding the municipal manager stand down.
Wanderers Street in Middelburg was clogged by stick-wielding mobs, and the entrance to the municipality is currently closed.
Motorists are warned to avoid the area and to exercise caution.
