The DA in a media statement have condemned the action taken by some villagers in Limpopo, where they burnt down schools,offices and police cars.

Their reason by that they are angry over the fact that the government has failed in there promise of changing the road from a gravel one to a tarred one.

The party in a statement said that their actions are denying them from getting all the important things they need;

“This violence and destruction will deny the residents of the village important services, including basic education for young children. This will only hurt the poor, and make life more difficult.”

“In 2008, the ANC government promised the construction of a road in the area.  Since then, only 5,5km of road has been tarred. The community is now demanding that 40km of road be tarred without any further delay.

“The protesters opted to shut down schools and prevent people from going to work demanding answers from the department.”
