The N2 highway between Somerset West and Cape Town is in chaos as alleged "land grabbers" have taken to the streets, burning tyres, setting vehicles alight and pelting cars with stones on Thursday morning.

The N2 outbound is reportedly closed to traffic at Somerset West Main and the N2 inbound is closed to traffic at Broadlands Road.

According to Heyns de Waal, chief operating officer at GBMED RESCUE, protests began at around 21:00 on Wednesday.

"There have been land grabs along the N2 on Sanral's property. These land grabbers have been erecting poles all week. The SAPS and metro police then moved in to remove them and everything then just erupted into chaos," De Waal told News24.

"At first they started burning tyres sporadically, but they came out in force at 21:00 and started targeting businesses along the N2 at Broadlands Road. We then deployed officers to the scene."

Armed road users should use their firearms and indiscriminately shoot and kill these terrorists as they drive by in an attempt to protect themselves, their properties and the lives of other road users.
Sch!t needs to hit the fan. Even my mother who never swears is on tipping point.

The whole of the N2 corridor is in a constant mess - right up from the Eastern Cape down to Cape Town...

In addition, like here in Johannesburg, and in Mooirivier, they are hungry. They are living in poverty. There is no food or money. So, businesses. trucks and road users are targeted for food and money purposes.

But you agree these terrorists should be wiped from the face of the earth.... right ?
Of course - no question there.

But to suggest licensed firearm owners must indiscriminately start killing people is a grossly irresponsible suggestion.

You are suggesting murder which makes you no better than them.
It is war. Not murder. They can hide this under the guise of "protest actions". But, where people mobilize in their masses and attack road users, infrastructure, loot, burn, destroy, it is an act of war. The civil war in SA has started. People can try to hide this as much as they want.
