JOHANNESBURG – Traffic along the Golden Highway in Lenasia south has been diverted to the R55 following protests in Zakariyya Park.

Residents are protesting over the lack of water for the past three days.

JMPD spokesperson Wayne Minnaar says residents have blocked the highway with burning tyres, rocks and tree branches.

“Motorists can use the R55 or K43 and the provincial roads as alternatives for now.”
