WATCH: Burning tyres, logs and truck light up Howick sky

KwaZulu-Natal police say the violent protest that forced the closure of the N3 in the vicinity of Howick in KZN Midlands on Thursday night was sparked by the arrest of community members who had allegedly invaded a private property in the area. Police spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala said on Friday morning that following the arrest of the alleged trespassers, community members embarked on a protest and blockaded the R617 and the N3 with burning tyres and tree logs. She said nine people were arrested after they allegedly trespassed on the property at about 18:00 on Thursday. Subscribe to News24:
