Rustenburg - The situation was calm in Mahikeng on Saturday despite two attempts to burn buildings overnight, North West police said.
A petrol bomb caused minor damages at the house of a traffic officer in Magogwe Tar village on Friday night, Brigadier Sabata Mokgwabone said.
"No one was injured during the incident. In the second, separate incident, a petrol bomb that was apparently meant to cause fire and damage to [the] Mmabana Arts Foundation building failed. This is the same building that was burnt on Thursday."
He said the situation in Mahikeng was relatively calm on Saturday. "At this stage, despite visible objects that were used as barricades, traffic is flowing on most of the roads and allowing members of the community to travel to their destinations."
