Disruptive protests have been reported near the Somerset West and Khayelitsha areas (Western Cape province) on Thursday, April 11, as hundreds denounced perceived land grabs and the lack of basic services in some localities. Demonstrators erected roadblocks forcing the partial shutdown of the N2 highway between Somerset West and Sir Lowry's Pass, while violent protests were reported in Khayelitsha on Thursday. Looting and clashes with security forces also took place in Nomzamo between the evening hours (local time) of Wednesday, April 10, to Thursday morning. 

A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions are to be expected in the vicinity of the demonstrations over the coming hours. Further protests, as well as clashes between police and demonstrators, cannot be ruled out. 


Individuals in Western Cape are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate traffic disruptions (including due to road closures and increased congestion), avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
