Leandra-Lebohang resembled a war zone last week. Smoke from burning tyres billowed into the air. This was after protesters clashed with the police who fired rubber bullets into the crowd. Protesters barricaded the main roads with stones and rubbish. They were protesting against service delivery. The protest has being going on for the past three months. Capt Leonard Hlathi, spokesman for the Mpumalanga Police, said nine people were arrested during the protests. "Three trucks were burned and more than 10 vehicles were stoned". The protesters are demanding tarred roads,clinics,street lights and houses. They also want all their councillors to resign and the area to be incorporated into Gauteng. Capt Hlathi said they will maintain a strong presence in the township and its major routes. "Motorists must be cautious when travelling on the R59 and the R20."
