Recently Police at Kgapane arrested the people who burnt down the houses in Kgapane after residents found a girl’s body parts. Yesterday angry residents allegedly marched to the police station demanding that the arrested people should be released and the murderers of the young girl should be arrested instead. When the people’s cries went unnoticed they marched to the house of the detective who made the arrest and burnt it down to ashes.
It did not end there, residents then marched to Modjadji plaza and torched the flea markets which are situated just outside the plaza. Yesterday the angry residents threatened that if their people are not released from kgapane police holding cells then they will burn Kgapane police station to the ground. It is believed that the strike had gathered the masses from as far as the notorious Ga-Rapistsi and Ga-Mapaana all gathering at Kgapane shopping center along with Kgapane residents. It is also alleged that there is currently no electricity at some parts of the protest’s affected areas because protesters burnt down the major Eskom electricity pole which supplies electricity to most households in Kgapane.
A few residents from Bolobedu took to facebook to express their views concerning the protest, here is what some of them had to say:
