JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South Africa's national government is taking over the running of its troubled North West province, the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) said on Sunday.

Last month President Cyril Ramaphosa cut short a visit to a Commonwealth summit in Britain to travel to the province in an effort to calm tensions after crowd protests over poor public services. Protestors also demanded the resignation of the local government leader Supra Mahumapelo, a member of Ramaphosa's ruling African National Congress (ANC).
