Police spokesperson, Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo, says police have been deployed to the area.


"They started protesting last night by blocking the Nelson Mandela Road that connect Seshego and Polokwane. The protest continued until this morning. That affected the traffic that had to be diverted to the Dendron-Polokwane road," says Mojapelo.


Mojapelo says the roads are being cleared.


"The protest is apparently as a result of the evictions that the municipality will embark upon on the illegal occupation of the land."
