Vuwani residents accept agreement reached with government

Pro-Makhado demarcation spokesperson, Nsovo Sambo, says residents have accepted the agreement with government over the demarcation crisis in Vuwani.

The District Municipality of Vhembe will now provide services directly to a new municipality in Malamulele. Residents have been demanding up until now that they do not want to be incorporated into Malamulele.

Sambo says, as residents they respect the decision made by its "respected" leaders including his Majesty Vha-Venda King Toni Mphephu Ramabulana.

Yesterday President Jacob Zuma did not address residents as planned, and Cogta Minister Des Van Rooyen was booed.

Presidency spokesperson Dr Bongani Ngqulunga says the reason the President left without addressing residents was because not all communities were represented at the meeting.

Ngqulunga says residents had no intention of booing Zuma.

More than 20 schools have been either torched or vandalised since protests began last year.

Residents have been demanding that their area is re-incorporated into the Makhado Municipality and not a new municipality in Malamulele.
