Twenty-seven men and women arrested for public violence and malicious damage to property during a service delivery protest appeared in the Nebo Magistrate's Court on Monday morning.

Lt-Col Mohale Ramatseba said the group was allegedly responsible for digging up part of the tar road between Lebowakgomo and Jane Furse last week.

Limpopo provincial police commissioner, Lt-Gen Simon Mpembe, urged residents to deal with their concerns without damaging property.

The 27 were granted bail of R500 each.

The case was postponed to March 14. - Sapa
