Erongo security cluster stop lockdown protest drive

The Security cluster in Erongo has stopped a convoy of cars near the Swakopmund Bridge.
The convoy planned to have a lockdown drive; an initiative aimed at protesting against the lockdown by driving in a convoy.
This is the second protest the group has held to denounce the lockdown which they say has crippled their businesses and livelihoods.
Last month, hundreds of people drove to the Yianni Savva police station near Long Beach and the protesters were dispersed by the police.
Gatherings of more than 10 people are prohibited under Stage 3 of the state of emergency regulations and the protesters say the lockdown drive is not a gathering because protesters remain in their cars.
