Residents of Lichtenburg and Coligny in North West went on the rampage on Monday looting shops, burning cars and other properties.
One of the vehicles set ablaze was a police car.
The people are calling for the mayor of Ditsobotla Local Municipality to step. If the mayor does not step down, they will continue protesting until their demands are met.
Some are calling on the Police minister Fikile Mbalula to help save the area.
