Johannesburg - A classroom has been burnt down in Tlapeng, near Ganyesa in North West, during a service delivery protest, police said on Wednesday.

The classroom was burnt down on Tuesday night, said Colonel Emelda Setlhako.

Residents from six villages in the Kagisano-Molopo area took to the streets on Monday, demanding that a 70km stretch of road be tarred.

Setlhako said no arrests had been made. She said 15 people arrested for public violence during a service delivery protest in Lomanyaneng, near Mahikeng on Tuesday, would appear in the Lomanyaneng Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
