Our reporter, Maryke Vermaak is in the area and reported that the police and members of the South African National Defence Force have been deployed but that they would mainly play a logistical role.

"At the station at one of the primary schools that were badly damaged during violent protests a few months ago, no-one has arrived to vote," Vermaak reported.
