The City of Johannesburg was forced to suspend the bus services after protesters barred ReaVava drivers from leaving the depot. Others, who were already en route to collect passengers, were forced to return to the depot.

Johannesburg metro police department spokesperson Xolani Fihla told Timeslive several roads in Soweto had been closed off by protesters, including those around Maponya Mall.
