Protesters would stop vehicles, break out in song while the driver hooted, and once the show is over, they would open the way for them to pass.

It has been more than five hours since protesters gathered on Beyers Naudé Drive near the N1 highway, and the number of protesters has only slightly dropped since the early hours of the morning, reports the Randburg Sun.

Traffic is heavily congested in both directions, and it is advisable to use alternative routes.

Peaceful protesters are raising their South African flags high, and are calling for President Jacob Zuma to step down.

Different placards have been seen throughout the morning. One read: “The tribe has spoken,” and another: “Zupta must fall.”

Protesters would stop vehicles, break out in song while the driver hooted, and once the show is over, they would open the way for them to pass. This has led to a heavy delay on Beyers Naude Drive from both directions.
