'The streets that were blocked earlier are still barricaded'

Tshwane Metro Police spokesperson Isaac Mahamba has apologised to commuters for the inconvenience caused by the bus strike.

Mahamba is responding to bus drivers affiliated to the South African Municipal Workers' Union (Samwu) blocking off major routes in the CBD on Monday morning demanding an 18% pay increase.

We as the city would like to apologise to all motorists for the situation they found themselves in this morning. Currently, the streets that were blocked earlier are still barricaded by either municipal buses, trucks or rubble.

He says intersections such as Madiba and Lilian Ngoyi, Madiba and Bosman are still blocked.
