Safety and Security Minister Charles Nqakula told the BBC 56 people had been killed and more than 650 injured. Previously, 50 deaths were reported.
More than 30,000 had been displaced or forced from their homes, he said.
Other organisations said this was a gross under-estimation and that at least 80,000 had been displaced.
Mr Nqakula added that more than 1,300 arrests had been made and special courts had been set up to deal with the situation.
