protestEWN reports that a protest was taking place on Monday morning at the entrance of the Steve Biko Academic Hospital in Pretoria, apparently by group of private security guards.  

It was not immediately apparent what the protest was about, but pictures posted on social media showed the entrance to the hospital being blocked.  Earlier, the protesters barricaded the gate, preventing access to the hospital, but police then dispersed the crowd.  Police spokesperson Kay Makhubele said officers were monitoring the situation and added:  “At the moment, the situation is calm as they are engaging with the management of the hospital, however, we’ll be continuing to monitor the area.”
