Violence has flared in South Africa’s Ennerdale area and police have had to use teargas to disperse a protesting crowd.
Motorists have been advised to avoid driving into Ennerdale as there were stones being thrown.
Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) spokesman Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said the South African Police Service and JMPD were on scene to monitor the situation.
Enca reports that residents took to the streets on Tuesday to protest against the lack of housing in the area.
There were reports of violence and clashes with police.
The residents, had, however, agreed to suspend the protests after they had a meeting with Johannesburg Council Speaker Vasco de Gama.
They have demanded to engage with City of Johannesburg mayor Herman Mashaba.
