Bloemfontein - More than 20 people have been arrested during protests in Masilo at Theunissen, Free State police said on Wednesday.

“In the past two days until 1pm today (Wednesday) 23 people were arrested and they are still busy booking people,” said Constable Peter Kareli.

Of these, 12 were made in Masilo on Tuesday.

The protests are allegedly linked to failed job opportunities at a nearby mine.

Kareli said some of those arrested were young people.

The protesters blocked a main road in Masilo to disrupt traffic in town.

Police were still on the scene.
