January 17  2017 – A 16-year-old boy was arrested in Tshitale town, outside of Vuwani, after two schools were torched in the area, Limpopo police said on Tuesday (today).

Vari Primary School was set alight on Sunday and Denga Secondary School was set alight on Monday(yesterday) night.

Police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said the 16-year-old boy was arrested on Monday, in connection with the Vari Primary School incident.

Last year about 2 000 schoolkids failed to write their mid matric exams after schools were burn’t down as people in Vuwani protested against municipal demarcations.

“The boy was arrested on Monday and now we are patrolling the Tshitale and surrounding areas to make more arrests. Protesters are nowhere to be seen and this calls for us to change our strategy,” said Mojapelo.

Mojapelo said a case of arson was opened and police are investigating.  –  ANA  Visit www.zimsinsa.com
