Johannesburg - Twenty-seven men and women arrested for public violence and malicious damage to property during a service delivery protest appeared in the Nebo Magistrate's Court on Monday morning.

Lieutenant Colonel Mohale Ramatseba said the group was allegedly responsible for digging up part of the tar road between Lebowakgomo and Jane Furse last week.

Limpopo provincial police commissioner, Lieutenant General Simon Mpembe, urged residents to deal with their concerns without damaging property.

The 27 were granted bail of R500 each. The case was postponed to March 14.

    They seem awfully industrious, maybe the local municipality can offer them jobs, then they can get paid to dig!
