Protesters burn down tribal hall

Published Mar 24, 2012


Johannesburg - Six people were arrested after they allegedly burnt down a tribal hall and offices and barricaded roads during a protest in Tlhatlhaganyane, near Rustenburg on Saturday morning, North West police said.

Captain Pelonomi Makau said the six were allegedly part of a group of people protesting against poor service delivery and corrupt officials from the tribal authority.

They said there had been maladministration at the tribal authority after the death of their chief, Leema Ntuane. They were also angry at the tribal authority after they did not receive any feedback from government about when a new chief would be appointed.

The six will appear in the Mogwase Magistrate's Court on Monday. - Sapa
