The sudden and unexpected mass action, resulted in the sealing of some major roads, obstructing the free flow of traffic. Protest action was sparked in the early hours of Monday morning by Eldorado Park residents, who have blockaded roads around the area, heavily affecting traffic.

The N12, Golden Highway, N1 and Union Road and other roads leading out of Eldorado Park have been reported as blocked.

The protest is believed to be linked to the allocation of RDP houses in the area.
