Reports have indicated that the R558 near Emdeni Link Road has been blocked, with Main Road and the R559 towards Randfontein also affected.

Police deployed in the area say community members have blocked the roads to protect their homes from the land grabbers.

Police are demolishing shacks, but those building shacks say they have permission to live there.
