Protest action along PE-Uitenhage road - use alternative routes

SEPTEMBER 9, 2015

The police in Port Elizabeth on Wednesday morning issued an alert to drivers travelling between Port Elizabeth and Uitenhage that the old Uitenhage Road and the Port Elizabeth/Uitenhage Road are closed.

This due to protest between Dora Nginza and the NMMU's Missionvale campus.

Residents have barricaded the roads with stones.

On Monday morning, protesters were dispersed by police from the Chatty dip along the Port Elizabeth/Uitenhage Road.

Again, on Tuesday morning a protest was broken up along the same road. 

Motorists are advised to to use alternative routes.
