Limpopo police say they will remain on high alert to avoid a repeat of violence in Vuwani.
At the weekend, residents threatened to shut down the area from Monday morning.
The pro-Makhado task team is accusing the government of not providing services in the area, after President Jacob Zuma promised in May this year that proper services would be rolled out.
Over 30 schools were either torched or vandalised during protests last year.
The police's Motlafela Mojapelo says they have issued a warning instructing residents to protest peacefully.
As the police, we will not hesitate to take action against anyone who commits a crime.— Motlafela Mojapelo, SAPS Limpopo Brigadier
Our pro-activeness on the ground will ensure that we don't witness a repeat of what happened previously where a number of government buildings and schools were torched.— Motlafela Mojapelo, SAPS Limpopo Brigadier
He says while services have been adversely affected and schooling disrupted, the situation is calm.
Since this morning people have been having some illegal meetings and so on but the situation is calm.— Motlafela Mojapelo, SAPS Limpopo Brigadier
