CAPE TOWN – The N2 has been reopened following a protest near Cape Town International Airport.
Authorities are keeping a close eye on the situation.
Two buses were gutted by protesters and two people have been arrested.
Traffic on the busy highway was brought to a complete standstill.
City officials claim residents were demonstrating because they’re unhappy about the ANC’s candidate list.
“We have confirmed that it’s a disagreement between community members or ANC activists about the nomination of a Mr Ngcobo as the ward candidate, so there’s some conflict
around that,” said the City’s JP Smith.
“We have offered a reward for information as to the instigators because theres quite a bit of private property and government property that’s been damaged.”
