Johannesburg - Three Agang SA members accused of malicious damage to property appeared in the Mahwelereng Magistrate's Court, Limpopo, on Wednesday, the party said.

The magistrate postponed the matter to 6 September to allow the prosecution more time to investigate the charge, Agang SA said in a statement.

The three were arrested on 22 July after a Mzombane residents' meeting in Mokopane ended in chaos.

Agang SA said the members had organised a discussion of their concerns about standards of living and a lack of service delivery with the Mogalakwena municipality's mayor at the meeting.

The mayor did not arrive. Angry residents told an ANC councillor, who came instead, to leave.

"The community of Mzombane, like many others across the country, is fed up with food parcel pay-offs when all we were asking for was water, electricity, jobs, decent education, and healthcare," Agang SA leader Mamphela Ramphele said in the statement.
