Seleteng residents threaten to continue with strike until their demands are met



GaMphahlele residents embarked on a protest since Friday last week, disrupting learning classes at local schools and barricading the street with stones and burning tyres.

This comes after community members have disregarded their royal family regent kgoshigadi Ngwana Mohule Phatudi Mphahlele as their local chief

Therefore, Seleteng residents are calling on the department of cooperative governance, human settlement and traditional affairs to intervene in selecting a new chief

Tswaledi Petja, a ward councillor, said residents have vowed to continue with the march until their demands are met.

Limpopo house of traditional leader’s chairperson Kgoshi Malesela Dikgale said it’s impossible for community members to select a chief.

Dilkgale said is the responsibility of the royal family that is in authority at that particular time.

Jerry Ndou, Limpopo MEC for cooperative governance, human settlement and traditional affairs, said his department does not appoint chiefs and is only guided by the royal family on issues pertaining to the chieftaincy

“Phatudi Mphahlele”s appointment was recommended by the royal family, processed by the house of traditional leaders and approved by the premier. In order to keep the peace, the royal family must decide on how to resolve the issue because they are the ones with the authority to appoint a rightful heir,” said Ndou
