CAPE TOWN - Protesters are warning motorists they won’t stop attacking vehicles on Cape Town's N2 until they get land.

Last week, two delivery trucks were petrol-bombed.

Motorists returning from the long weekend were pelted with stones.

The demonstrators mainly live in other people's backyards in Lwandle township.

"The aim is not to demolish other people’s or companies property, but we want to close the N2,” said backyard dweller Viziyolo Madolo.

Police said a task team will be deployed to Lwandle.

“We have deployed our resources in that area. Visible policing has been increased and we have an operational plan to ensure the safety of motorists,” said Western Cape police spokesperson, Andre Traut.
