Zuma, King Ramabulana meeting yields 'crucial' decisions on Vuwani
Vuwani was brought to a standstill last month, following a decision by the demarcation board to reject the community's appeal to revert to their previous municipality.
JOHANNESBURG – The Limpopo government says it will communicate a decision taken by President Jacob Zuma and King Toni Mphephu Ramabulana to Vuwani residents this weekend which could see the shutdown being lifted.
Business and schools have been closed since last month, following a decision by the demarcation board, to reject the community's appeal to revert to their previous municipality.
Two people were killed when their vehicle crashed into a pipe used to barricade a road.
President Jacob Zuma has met with the king of vhaVenda in an attempt to bring the town back to normality.
The premier's spokesperson Kenny Mathivha says he can't reveal what decisions were taken by President Zuma and the Vuwani community leaders.
“There have been some very crucial decisions that have been reached, which the president of the republic will be able to communicate with the people of Vuwani on Sunday.”
Mathivha says he is confident the decision taken by the leadership will be well received by the community and won't spark more violence.
