READ: MK Vets promise to continue protesting

Police closed roads near the Workshop in Durban where a crowd of MK vets gathered.

Yesterday, similar violent scenes broke out as they were joined in protest by a group who called themselves the People's Revolutionary Movement.

They claim foreign nationals have taken the jobs of locals and accused them of selling drugs and other crimes.

Newswatch understands that the leaders of the group were locked in a meeting with city officials on Tuesday afternoon.

They are also demanding to speak to the eThekwini Mayor Mxolisi Kaunda and say if the demands are not met, protest action will continue during the week.

The stalls owned by foreign nationals outside the Workshop that was shut down yesterday remain closed.
