Kagiso Pooe traces the unrests to labour-related issues in places such as Marikana and Tlokwe.

North West is one of the provinces on high alert for possible violence and disruptions.

So far 21 people have been arrested for allegedly torching an electoral officer's vehicle in Ganyesa.

Public policy specialist and lecturer at the North-West University Kagiso Pooe says the issues in the province go back to 2014. Pooe traces the unrests to labour-related issues in places such as Marikana and Tlokwe.

It has to do with politics and not just the politics of people who originate from North West but to has to do with labour-related issues.
