CAPE TOWN: Minister of Police Bheki Cele met members of the Total Shutdown protest movement in Bonteheuwel in Cape Town on Wednesday, a day after protesters brought several areas of the city to a standstill.

The Total Shutdown protests are focused on working class neighourhoods of Cape Town, with organisers saying nothing much had changed since the fall of Apartheid, with crime and violence rampant in many communities.

On Wednesday, community members gathered at the Bonteheuwel multi-purpose centre holding posters saying “Enough is enough”.
