The Tshwane Metro Police Department (TMPD) has advised motorists to avoid the CBD and use alternative routes as there is a protest in the city.

Metro Police officers and the South African Police Service (SAPS) have been deployed to monitor the situation.

  • Lilian Ngoyi between Pretorius and Boom street 
  • Boom between Thabo Sehume and Sisulu Street
