JOHANNESBURG - Limpopo police have confirmed a house and a school that was damaged due to ongoing protests in Vuwani has been burnt to the ground.

At least 24 schools have now been destroyed as protesters intensify their action against the inclusion into the Malamulele Municipality.

State Security Minister David Mahlobo, acting in his capacity as minister of police, visited the area yesterday and condemned what he called hooliganism.

The police's Malesela Ledwaba says eight more people have been arrested.

"We had one incident overnight as a house was set on fire and a school that was previously damaged was set alight this morning."
