Upon arriving in Snake Park Extension 4 (in Soweto) on the afternoon of 19 August 2020, surprisingly the roads were blocked with stones. Residents who stay in an informal settlement next to Doornkop Ext 4 (Soweto) were marching and protesting against electricity cut-offs.

The police were controlling the situation by shooting rubber bullets and tear gas cannisters. Taxis and cars were forced to use alternative routes. It also forced some to walk for kilometres to get home.
