JOHANNESBURG - The Limpopo government says it will conclude clean-up operations in Vuwani by this afternoon, before final meetings with traditional leaders get underway.

Learning will resume on Monday after two weeks of violent protests.

Vuwani was declared a disaster area this week after more than 20 schools were torched and vandalised.

Government is now able to free up funds to start rebuilding schools and provide mobile facilities and clinics.

The provincial government's spokesperson Phuti Seloba says, "On Monday we expect all learners to be in school uniform. Everybody seems to understand that they can go on with their legal challenge, but the children need to go to school and workers need to go work for their children."

The protests revolve around demarcation and the residents' refusal to join a new municipality in Malamulele, but others believe tribalism is at the heart of the protests.
