Police monitor taxi protests in Hout bay
12 August 2016
Calm has returned to the Imizamo Yethu area in Hout Bay after a protest this morning.
Taxi drivers blocked off a number of roads.
The main road into the informal settlement has been re-opened after protesting taxi drivers blocked it off earlier this morning.
Vehicles that had been blocking the road have been towed away and protesters have spread.
It's unclear what the drivers were demonstrating over. Apart from traffic being affected there have been no reports of violence.
