Johannesburg - A woman was killed and 10 people were arrested during service delivery protests in Masoyi, south of Hazyview, Mpumalanga police said on Monday.

The woman was killed on Sunday afternoon after a truck accidentally reversed into her on a road barricaded by protesters, Sergeant Gerald Sedibe said.

Police were searching for the driver.

The protesters were arrested that afternoon, reportedly for public violence and destruction of property. They were expected to appear in court on Tuesday.

  • Sydney Matubandlela - 2012-02-13 15:07

    And which party do u people suggest they vote for? DA....? keep dreaming, DA will never rule this country, not with the current state of economic affairs in this country, especially not with the attitudes of many WHITE people...

      @ Sydney Matubandlela - That mentality is really f'ed up. So you will just keep on voting against the so called WHITE people and spite yourself and this countries economy????

      Your service delivery must be great, these people trusted their vote and got nothing for it! It has nothing to do with race, just the ruling party. Think before you sprout racist inuendo please.

      why does everything always have to degenarate into black and white its high time we BLACK brothers lose this entitlement mentality and witch hunting w ehave balck plonkers as much as we have white idiots and as such its useless for us to blame whictes for our owmn inequities.

      especially not with the attitudes of many WHITE people... ...and the attitudes of millions of black people. You just cant see beyond color can you?!

      If you insist on being a racist, then what about voting for the PAC, Azapo, UDM, Cope - anything but the ANC? People get the government they deserve, and if you're too stupid to make the connection between your power at the ballot box and your personal lot, don't expect any sympathy whatsoever if you are still poor and still live in a shack but insist on voting ANC.

      Well said, Tmunotsiwa. The race card is becoming a little worn out.

      Nigel - 2012-02-13 15:38

      its time to stop blaming other skin colors & start holding the government to account. tmunotsiwa hit the nail on the head, lets stop thinking along the color of our skins & start working together, almost all of us want the same thing, prosperity, peace & stability, the sooner we start working together the sooner this will come, the govt is there to work for us not the other way around.

      Maybe the vote will change when we are Africa's Greece and no money are left for grants and free homes.

      Well, enough said Sydney South Africa will always be like the joke of creating hate: "....Lock Parrot and Crow together in cage. Gay is thinking Crow...and Gipsy tought Parrot.." I don't give a t*ss what color is South African President. I want to live a normal life. I've had enough of all racial bul*eet!

  • Mattewis - 2012-02-13 15:08

    Rather vote for someone who looks like me, than for someone who can deliver services! Eish, the ways of the blackman are strange indeed! Even Samual L Jackson will have to agree!!!!

  • tmunotsiwa - 2012-02-13 15:27

    and black people sing the same old story..."white man is the witch" thats a lame excuse for our opathetic inequities, am not one of those that cannot see beyond their nose.high time we realsie blaming everything on the ml;ungu and the attitude of entitlement is an impedimnet to development on its own

      TaniaSandraSteyn - 2012-02-13 15:50

      I agree, Tnumotsiwa. This was an accident, and the Truck driver should not be blamed. There are many ways to show your unhappiness, and striking or burning tires is so Eighties. Going to school and doing your part from very young means YOU can be the Councillor and make a real difference in your Community. Sitting and wishing, or screaming and burning will never solve the problem.

      Sorry, I had a problem with my m&n's.

  • Shirley - 2012-02-13 15:32

    When will they learn-when they are getting what you voted for!!!!!! They havent delivered after 17 years but the masses STILL dont get it!
