CAPE TOWN - Cape Town law enforcement officers are still monitoring the situation in Sir Lowry's Pass Village as protest action continues with residents barricading the roads with burning tyres and rubble.

Sir Lowry's Pass is currently closed at the N2.

Housing is a key issue for the demonstrators.
