Dozens of protesters have been arrested for public violence after a service delivery protest in the sleepy Southern Cape town of Sedgefield.
Police said about 400 residents marched to the nearby municipality to hand over a memorandum.
Spokesperson Bernadine Steyn said the situation got out of hand.
“Sixteen people were arrested for public violence after stones were thrown at Saps members and their vehicles. Two stun grenades were thrown to disperse the group that were approximately 400,” she said.
This is the second service delivery protest in the Southern Cape in under a week.
