Violence has erupted at Tafelsig in Mitchells Plain on the Cape Flats on Sunday during an anti-drug march organised by the community and People Against Gangsterism and Drugs (Pagad).

The group marched to the houses of alleged drug dealers where cars and houses were stoned.

Pagad co-ordinator, Mogammad Keeran, says in the process of them going through the community, they came across houses of drug merchants and they were approached and asked to stop their activities.

“What transpired is that they decided to react violently against us, there were stones and bricks flying through the air, we had a right to protest ourselves. Our message was very clear we're not stopping this process here today.”
