Mossel Bay - Thirty people have been arrested for public violence and looting shops during protests in Kwanonqaba in Mossel Bay, Western Cape police said on Wednesday.
The protest was apparently over service delivery and electricity in the area, and the 30 people were arrested on Tuesday and Wednesday, Captain Malcolm Pojie said.
“They are all still in custody,” he said.
The protests began on Sunday, with people barricading roads with burning tyres, sticks, and stones.
“They also burnt down the Kwanonqaba municipal building, next to the local police station,” said Pojie.
