Protest blocks R72 on first day of school

SAPS and emergency services are monitoring a service delivery protest which blocked the R72 at Kenton-on-Sea this morning.

Traffic has been diverted on the R67 towards Grahamstown and at Nanaga onto the N2.

The protest was timed for the first day of the new school year, but it is not yet known if it is school-related.

There were numerous school protests in Ndlambe over the course of 2015, from Alexandria to Bathurst, over teacher shortages, overcrowded classes and decaying infrastructure.
