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.

Kapenaars of mense wat 'n geruime tyd in die provinsie bly, weet teen dié tyd al dat die reënseisoen nou begin - en daarmee saam ongelukkig nie net die goeie nuus dat die damme weer vol raak vir noodsaaklike watervoorsiening nie, maar ook oorstromings en soms skade wat daarmee gepaardgaan. Tog wag mense tot dit te laat is voor hul werklik voorsorg daarteen tref, soos om genoeg sandsakke te pak of ander maatreëls te tref. Wie se verantwoordelikheid is dit werklik?
