Calm restored after protesters take to the streets in Tshwane shutdown
Calm has been restored following service delivery protests in the informal settlement of Gomorrah, west of Pretoria.
Demonstrators clashed with police earlier on Thursday.
Police say they will remain there tonight to ensure violence does not flare up again.
EWN reporter Ahmed Kajee says a group of protesters petrol bombed a church and stole equipment.
