Tshwane bus drivers strike - TMPD Closely Monitoring Tshwane Bus Drivers Strike

Law enforcement officers are closely monitoring the situation in the Pretoria CBD where several roads remained closed as a protest by truck and bus drivers continues for a second day.

Workers affiliated to the South African Municipal Workers’ Union (Samwu) again took to the streets, blocking roads with vehicles and garbage.

They’re demanding an 18% pay increase.

The demonstration started on Monday with similar tactics and ground the CBD to a halt.

Tshwane Metro Police Department (TMPD) spokesperson Isaac Mahamba said: “We have deployed our members to try and redirect the traffic into other streets that are not affected. We will continue to be on-site until we are assured that the situation is normal.”
