Mahikeng rioting suspects in court
About 23 arrested rioting suspects in Mahikeng are expected to appear in the Mmabatho Magistrate Court this morning. Scores of Mahikeng residents went on a rampage last week burning buildings, cars and looting shops. They were calling for North West Premier, Supra Mahumapelo to step down. The residents are accusing Mahumapelo of maladministration and corruption. The arrested suspects are facing charges of public violence, arson and malicious damage to property. The situation is calm this morning as residents awaits a response from President Cyril Ramaphosa.
