Atteridgeville, an area west of Pretoria, has been rendered on edge as the community protested against an increase in municipal rates, on Monday morning.
Roads leading to the township were barricaded with burning tyres.
It is also reported that trains were also not running in the area.
Tshwane Metro police have been monitoring the situation closely.
