Residents are being warned to avoid Baden Powell Drive as protest action had ensued in the area, forcing law enforcement to close the road.

Yesterday evening at roughly 9.47pm an ambulance travelling through the area was badly stoned. The team was unharmed but left in shock by the incident.

This morning those needing to travel along this specific road are being urged to make use of an alternative route.

Baden Powell Drive remains closed due to protest action earlier this morning. Debris is still in road from Monwabisi to N2.

“Baden Powell Drive from the Monwabisi beach resort to the N2 was a scene of protest action earlier this morning. Groups of people blocked the road and burning tires and dragged debris into the road. Law enforcement agencies responded and the protestors dispersed into the nearby informal settlements,” said the City’s Law Enforcement Spokesperson, Wayne Dyson.
