The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) has marched through the streets of Cape Town to demand a reliable and affordable commuter rail system.
This is amid the continuous vandalism, poor maintenance, safety issues and the general state of Metrorail.

Western Cape Cosatu chairperson, Motlatsi Tsubane says they have handed over a memorandum to the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa), Metrorail and other stakeholders.
We are once more pleading with them for them to provide reliable and trustful public transport.— Motlatsi Tsubane, Chairperson - Western Cape Cosatu
We have tried to tell them and express the plight of people, the challenges we are faced with as far as trains are concerned - trains are not reliable, workers arrive late are work. If you look at the queues you will see the lines are very long. They arrive late at home and our areas are not safe.— Motlatsi Tsubane, Chairperson - Western Cape Cosatu
