eNCA reporter Lirandzu Temba gives an update on the ongoing picket by Samwu affiliated drivers in the country's capital.

With bus services still suspended, the City of Tshwane is experiencing the second day of traffic chaos this Tuesday.

RELATED: Tshwane mayor has not engaged with union leadership, says Samwu

On Monday, South African Municipal Workers' Union (Samwu) brought the city to a complete standstill demanding an 18% pay hike.

RELATED: 'The streets that were blocked earlier are still barricaded'

Protestors used buses and trucks to barricade different routes in and out of the CBD, creating a major traffic nightmare.

RELATED: 'They are using municipal buses to block routes around the city'

To give an update on the protest, Clement Manyathela on the Xolani Gwala Show chats to eNCA reporter Lirandzu Temba.

The situation is nothing short of a nightmare for Tshwane bus commuters, motorists and businesses. It has been gridlocked since yesterday, in fact, I think it has intensified today as we are more roads being blockaded. We are seeing more workers joining the strike.

Lirandzu Temba, Reporter - eNCA

She says protestors are picketing outside Tshwane House and there is a meeting scheduled between city officials and union leaders.

Temba adds that Samwu officer bearers are clear about their demands of 18% and say they will settle for nothing less.

However, a statement from the City says that the union has not lodged a complaint with the bargaining council and the only way there could be negotiations, is if a complaint was lodged.
