COLIGNY - North West police say they are happy with the meeting they had with community leaders in Coligny earlier on Tuesday.
The meeting was held at the local police station in an effort to contain the violent protests, which flared up on Monday.
Community members vowed to continue their demonstrations until the bail of the two men accused of killing 16-year-old Matlhomola Moshoeu is overturned.
They have started streaming into the local sports ground where officials are set to address them about the earlier meeting.
The police's Sabatha Mokgwabone says the meeting went well.
“We had a meeting with the leadership of the community, the farming community, as well as the business community and we are happy with the outcome of the meeting.”
Residents temporarily stopped their protest on Tuesday morning to allow their leaders to meet with government and police officials and make their demands known.
