Limpopo - Residents of Namakgale in Limpopo barricaded roads and burnt several vehicles during protests, police said on Monday.

“Last night [on Sunday night] three trucks and two bakkies were set alight. Residents are blocking roads inside the township as well as the R71 between Namkgale and Phalaborwa,” said spokesman Colonel Ronel Otto.

She added that an unemployment forum in the area organised the protests.

“At this stage, it is not clear whether the protest is against the possible lack of service delivery or unemployment. Public order police are monitoring the area.”

No arrests have been made.
