3 Trucks Were Burned By Angry Community Members Who Then Started Looting

Angry inhabitants of Marhonwane are claimed to have set three vehicles ablaze near the Inyaka Dam on the R40 Marite, which is a popular route for locals and tourists. 


It's evident that the lack of service delivery from the African National Congress has taken its toll on the protesting community, which is demanding that the Mpumalanga government create a tarmac road connecting Marhonwane and Thushanang Villages. 


There are now reports of people setting fire to trucks because they are upset about the way the government is conducting itself. This is alarming to many, and many members of the public have nothing better to say than to support such acts of terrorism. 


For now, we're in a tricky spot where a lot of these actions have been undertaken and the general public has nothing we can do about it since it indicates that folks are battling against this broken system in order to restore it to its glorious days. 


Even though the movement is encouraging, we do not support the burning of infrastructure. There are many ways to fix our government's problems without going around setting things on fire; this is a sentiment shared by a large number of people in our society today. 



Since this is a pattern we've noticed over the years and one that appears to be persisting, we're encouraging as many people as possible to address it head-on, because it's something we don't want to see in our society.
