Johannesburg - A total of 27 protesters accused of public violence and malicious damage to property appeared at the Nebo Magistrate's Court on Thursday, Limpopo police said.

"The arrested suspects went on the rampage, digging up the tar road between Lebowakgomo and Jane Furse at Apel Cross on Tuesday," said Lieutenant Colonel Mohale Ramatseba.

He said the protesters from Masemola were protesting against water shortages in the area.

They were expected to make a formal bail application on Monday.

    That is always the best way to resolve an issue, by making it even worse. No one will be attending to the problem now, as they are all out celebrating their tremendous success of the transformation process.

    I'm proud of you the Ga-masemola community of what they have done, many areas in Limpopo experience the same situation but dying in silence. I know the feeling of being without water or having water shortage while the tender politician are looting the service delivery money and thats not fair so go Limpopo go. viva the Ga-masemola community viva

    Since they are all complaining about poor service delivery from their current local government, maybe, next time around, they should vote in a different party? I forget, next elections, the ANC will be handing out more T-shirts and food parcels, and the masses will vote them in again.

    So while the 27 wait in jail, the "committed" struggle leaders who offered them "a better life for all" will be chugging Johnny Blue in Bloemfontein.
