Several major roads leading in and out of Soweto have been adversely affected by strike action.
According to reports, residents began burning tyres and blocking major roadways early on Thursday morning. It is unclear at this stage what the demonstrations are about.
Klispruit Valley and Chris Hani roads are reportedly closed.
JMPD officers were at the scene to monitor the situation.
Updates to follow as more information is made available.
