LICHTENBURG – The Mayor of Ditsobotla in the North West has been freed after being held hostage in the Lichtenburg municipal offices.
The community is apparently unhappy with the Integrated Development Plan final report, which was tabled on Tuesday.
The municipal buildings have been torched.
Around 40 community members allegedly took Mayor Daniel Buthelezi hostage.
The group threatened to set themselves alight if their complaints about poor service delivery in the area are not heard.
The protestors have been arrested.
