JOHANNESBURG - The Cooperative Governance Department says mobile schools will be delivered to Vuwani in an effort to have schooling resume tomorrow.

More than 20 schools were seriously damaged during community protests.

Twenty-four people have been arrested in connection with the vandalism with authorities saying more arrests are expected.

Department spokesperson Legadima Leso says community members have committed themselves to protecting the schools.

"They are resolute. On Monday, kids are going back to school. They will make sure that they protect the infrastructure."

The department says schooling will commence tomorrow after violent protests and vandalism saw pupils unable to go to school.

Officials say calm has been restored to the area following ongoing protests against the integration of Vuwani into the new Malamulele Municipality.

Yesterday, a government task team held a prayer meeting in Vuwani, to bring communities together.
