reavayaTimesLIVE reports that police had to resort to firing rubber bullets to prevent protesting crowds from barricading several roads with burning tyres in Soweto on Tuesday.  

Several areas, including Moroka, Nancefield Road and Klipspruit Valley Road, were affected.  Rea Vaya bus services were suspended, leaving scores of commuters stranded.  Motorists were advised to use Chris Hani Road, Khumalo Street or drive through Meadowlands.  Provincial police spokesperson Capt Kay Makubele reported that no arrests had been made and no property had been damaged.  Rea Vaya indicated later on Twitter that buses were back in operation, and apologised for the inconvenience.
