The protests took a turn when a sheep was slaughtered on the beach. Those involved said the offering was a way to call on their ancestors to react to the recent incident.

Briefly.co.za gathered from a report by The South African that the meat would be braaied after this ritual.

The security company claims it was working with local law enforcement to clear the beach after two girls were allegedly raped in the area, but the police claim there was no reports of rape.

Masixole Mlandu, one of the protestors, says people should defend their right to use spaces such as the beach.
