Butterworth - Twenty-six people appeared in the Ngqamakhwe Magistrate's Court on charges of public violence on Tuesday, Eastern Cape police said.

“They were not asked to plead and their case was postponed to November 22 for further investigation,” said Captain Jackson Manatha.

The group was released on a warning. The 18 women and eight men were arrested on Monday after violent protests broke out in the area.

Manatha said the area was quiet on Tuesday morning.
