Early last night, March 13, protests flared up again in Princess along Albertina Sisulu Road, Roodepoort Record reports.

Metro police once again closed the road when residents took to the streets to express their dismay about housing.

Police feared that motorists would be pelted with rocks and businesses vandalised again. By 6.30am this morning, the road was still closed, but when the Record visited the area at 7.30am, it was open and traffic was flowing.
