Johannesburg - Protesters blockaded roads and burnt a number of buses, buildings and an informal settlement in Lephalale, Limpopo police said on Tuesday.

"What we can confirm is that buses were burnt, the municipal offices and the location Marapong was burnt and also a satellite police station," Lieutenant Colonel Malesela Ledwaba said.

He said the incident happened on Monday night, but it was not clear why people were protesting.

"They are not protesting as of now. It was just a number of people who gathered and they blockaded the roads and then from there they disappeared," Ledwaba said.
