The department's spokesperson Castro Ngobese said Maile is trying to find the underlying reasons for the protests.
He will also visit the sites of destroyed public infrastructure and extend condolences to the families who lost their loved ones. He will be accompanied by senior officials and local councillors.
Residents vandalised the Rabasotho community centre, torched cars and the community civic centre, among other things. Four people died during the protest over “high rates” and electricity issues.
