Calm has returned to Witsand in Atlantis following a violent service delivery protest. This, after an agreement was reached with the local municipality. Earlier, police fired rubber bullets and teargas to disperse protesting crowds. Protesters blockaded roads in the area with burning tyres and tree branches. They were demanding better service delivery including the approval of the construction of a community hall. However, Community Leader, Thobile Maseti says the residents are planning to go to the police station tomorrow to demand the release of seven protestors: “The community is saying we can call the protest off but one of the things that is worrying the community now which is just a recent development they are concerned about the people who were arrested which is seven of them because. They’re asking what happened to those people what did they do wrong because they feel that those people did not do anything wrong.”
