Limpopo police were monitoring the situation in Malamulele this morning, following days of violent protests.
“No incidents which have needed police attention have been reported since last night,” said Colonel Ronel Otto.
Protest organisers had been scheduled to meet with officials from the cooperative governance department yesterday.
It was unclear whether that meeting had taken place.
“I know though that there have been a series of meetings over the last few days,” said Otto.
Protesters demanding their own municipality have brought Malamulele to a standstill and barred pupils from attending school.
They monitored roads to ensure no business took place and forced a shutdown of schools as well as shops in the local mall.
Residents blamed the Municipal Demarcation Board for not heeding their call for Malamulele and some surrounding areas, especially those that are Xitsonga-speaking, to have its own municipality.
The demand for another municipality has fuelled tensions between Tshivenda and Xitsonga speakers and triggered division among local traditional leaders as some regard it as a tribal issue.
