CAPE TOWN: While the City council has brought light to 63 homes in Uitkyk in formal settlement in Sir Lowry’s Pass, further down the street hundreds of irate residents protested for service delivery and electricity. Residents from an informal settlement near Sir Lowry’s Pass Village took their frustration to the streets on Monday, causing road closures on the N2 between Broadlands and Hazeldene Road in Somerset West. The angry residents barricaded the road with burning tyres. Video by: David Ritchie/ ANA Pictures
