Polokwane - Residents of Botlokwa in Limpopo pelted cars with stones and barricaded the N1 on Wednesday, Limpopo police said.
Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said residents wanted to remove the chairman of the traditional council.
He said on Monday a group called Botlokwa Community Safety wanted to march, but the municipality declined the request because due processes were not followed.
“Today (Wednesday) at 9am they gathered at traditional council with the view of removing the chairman forcefully.”
He said public order police dispersed the crowd, which went to the N1 to barricade the freeway between Polokwane and Louis Trichardt.
