Police at Mbizana in the Eastern Cape have closed off the R61 road to town as hundreds of people from Dindini village tried to march to the police station.

They’re now converging at a local sports field.

The protest follows the arrest of six suspects allegedly linked to the murder of Chief Thulani Mjanyelwa.

He was attacked and set alight outside his home by an angry mob.

Schooling has also been disrupted by the protest as learners have also joined.

It’s believed the protesters are demanding the release of the suspects.
