Protest outside Musina court

2012-05-08 15:41
Johannesburg - Protests were taking place outside the Musina Magistrate's Court on Tuesday after nine people were arrested following service delivery protests in the Limpopo town, police said.

"On Sunday, members of the community marched to the house of Musina Mayor Carol Phiri and the chief whip of the municipality Simon Madamalala," Superintendent Ronel Otto said.

"They were protesting about service delivery... They demanded the two people be removed."

Nine people were arrested for public violence - four of them on Sunday and the other five on Monday when they handed themselves to the police.

"This morning [Tuesday] the nine people are appearing in the Musina Magistrate's Court," said Otto.

"That is why the protest started. There are burning tyres and blocked roads."

Police arrived, flames were doused and road barricades removed. The nine people were still in court.
