Four people alleged to have destroyed IEC banners in Kuruman were arrested

on Saturday, said Northern Cape police.

Lieutenant Colonel Donald Mdhluli said the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) banners mounted at Dithakong Tribal Office, Omang Primary School and Lehuro Primary School were set alight amid the voter registration processes in those buildings.

"The three IEC voters registration points were then closed down as a result," said Mdhluli.

"The value of the IEC [banners] is estimated at about R50 000."

The men, aged between 22 and 42, were charged with malicious damage to property.

They were expected to appear in court soon.

Police were monitoring the area.
