JOHANNESBURG – Police are out in full force in Vuwani again, as the Limpopo town remains on shut down for a third day.

On Tuesday two people burnt to death when the vehicle they were travelling in crashed into a pipe used by protesters to barricade the road.

A third person was injured in that crash.

Residents are unhappy about the demarcation of the municipality.

The police's Moatshe Ngoepe says the situation remains calm.

"They are trying their luck but as soon as they start that, we have already arrived. That’s why nothing happened over last night."
