A national bus strike is planned for Wednesday could leave commuters stranded.
South African Transport and Allied Workers' Union (Satawu) National Coordinator Solomon Mahlangu spoke to Gugu Mhlungu, on The Afternoon Drive. He says the bus strike has arisen because of the collapse in wage negotiations which started in January.
