Limpopo police say they've made progress due to new leads in their Vuwani violence investigation, which they believe could lead to more arrests.  Authorities say the situation in the area remains tense after at least 20 schools were burnt to the ground in violent protests earlier this month. 

The head of the ministerial committee established to deal with Vuwani in Limpopo, Des van Rooyen, says some Grade 12 learners from Vuwani and surrounding villages will be provided with tablets.

Stationery and some school records have been destroyed at 24 schools that were torched and vandalised in the area during demarcation protests.

van Rooyen, has been engaging with community members in the Limpopo town in an effort to ensure the Vhembe district and surrounding areas return to normality.
