Johannesburg - The house of a Mpumalanga councillor was vandalised on Monday during service delivery protests in Masoyi, south of Hazyview, Mpumalanga police said.

The windows of councillor Morris Mazibane's home were broken during protests which began on Sunday afternoon, said Sergeant Gerald Sedibe.

A woman was killed and 10 people were arrested on Sunday during the protests. A truck accidentally reversed into her on a road barricaded by protesters, Sedibe said. Police were searching for the driver.

The protesters were arrested that afternoon for public violence and destruction of property. They were expected to appear in court on Tuesday.

Another service delivery protest, in Kwabokweni, 30km south of Masoyi, had dispersed by Monday afternoon. It began on Sunday evening,

Sedibe said five people were arrested for public violence.

The protesters were expected to appear in court soon.

    I just made some calculations on how the tax changes to the medical aid contributions is going to affect us from 1 March 2012...if there was a councillor's house or for that matter any ANC politician's house nearby, I would personally burn it down to the ground. We are getting screwed BIG TIME with this tax change and no one is complaining publicly.

    When will the populace learn that they don't have to vote for the ANC?
