Roads blocked in councillor protest
Johannesburg - Residents of Magogoe Koikoi in the North West have barricaded roads in the area in a protest against the appointment of an ANC councillor, the SABC reported on Tuesday.
It is believed that the community was demonstrating because Mahikeng Local Municipality's Ward 19 appointed ANC candidate Shimane Moremedi instead of their preferred independent candidate, Nduna Mangayi.
Residents used burning tyres, old cars and stones to block the roads.
