According to police spokesperson Lt Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe, six cars were damaged by people throwing stones from bushes. He says cases of malicious damage to property were opened but no arrests have been made as yet.

“Motorists are advised to drive with caution, especially during the night, as the volatility of the situation cannot rule out the possibility of stones being thrown at passing vehicles from the bushes. In the event of this happening, the police must be contacted immediately,” he warned.
