Masilo residents plan on boycotting elections | News Article

Residents of the Masilo Local Municipality in the Free State have warned they may not take part in upcoming municipal elections.

This follows recent protests in the area that were ignited after planned Freedom Day Celebrations - previously set to be held in the area - were moved to Botshabelo outside Bloemfontein.

Community leader Tshepo Maredi told OFM News they've requested a council sitting as soon as possible.

The situation in the municipality is calm at the moment.

Businesses and schools are running normally after two weeks of chaos.
