Today is the second day of a countrywide bus strike, which has led to severe disruptions yesterday 18 April 2018. With many workers unable to get to work.

It would also appear that other unions want to join the strike, which would increase the chaos. The strike was relatively peaceful, but how long that will last remains uncertain as strikes tend to be violent with major property damage.

Meanwhile, motorists have been relieved that many unroadworthy buses with sometimes reckless drivers are off the roads for a while.

On 18 April 2018, police also had to intervene in Naboomspruit when fighting taxi groups barred the town’s main street and allegedly even fired off gunshots.

Last night, violence broke out in Mahikeng in the North West when the police acted against residents who wanted to burn down the house of Premier Supra Mahumapelo. Police have been successful in calming residents after violent protests broke out yesterday.

And in Umhlanga, construction work was disrupted at a R4.2 million development by rioters. The development is a top class shopping center, hotel and luxury homes.
