Ongoing protest action has disrupted traffic along the N2 highway near Plettenberg Bay (Western Cape province) on Wednesday, September 30. The cause of the protest is not known, though previous protest action has been related to service delivery demands.
Further disruptions should be expected in the immediate term. Additional security personnel may be deployed to disperse protesters, and clashes between the two cannot be ruled out.
Those in Western Cape province are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, plan alternative routes if traveling, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities. Travelers encountering a protest or roadblock should not attempt to drive through it, as such actions may provoke a violent response from demonstrators, including attacks on vehicles.
