Bekkersdal protests continue

NATIONAL NEWS - Gauteng police were monitoring Bekkersdal, outside Westonaria, on Wednesday following violent service delivery protests in the area.

Constable Elsie Tshonte said a group of protesters gathered near the local taxi rank.

"They are singing and burning tyres... It's not violent," she said.

She denied reports that a foreign shop owner shot and wounded a protester earlier.

"It's hearsay... Nothing has been reported at the police station yet."

During the protests last week, residents threw stones and a petrol bomb at the local police station, damaging three police vehicles and a disaster management vehicle.

Thirty-five people were arrested and charged with public violence.

Die druk om godsdiens uit skole te verban, word al groter. Dit is waar dat almal nie dieselfde geloof het nie, maar is die oplossing om geen godsdiens te beoefen nie?
Nee, want dissipline en morele waardes sal net verder taan.
