Johannesburg - Six people were arrested after they allegedly burnt down a tribal hall and offices and barricaded roads during a protest in Tlhatlhaganyane, near Rustenburg on Saturday morning, North West police said.

Captain Pelonomi Makau said the six were allegedly part of a group of people protesting against poor service delivery and corrupt officials from the tribal authority.

They said there had been maladministration at the tribal authority after the death of their chief, Leema Ntuane.

The group was also angry at the tribal authority after they didn’t receive feedback from government regarding the appointment of a new chief.
The 6 will appear in the Mogwase Magistrate's Court on Monday.

    Doing what they do best-DESTROY everything in sight! These people who destroy property should be put at the bottom of the list for any housing etc! The night or two in jail teaches them nothing. If you destroy property then you should not be able to receive any!
