Road Freight Association CEO Gavin Kelly gives an update on the situation on the N4 next to the Kanyamazane in Nelspruit.

Severa trucks were set alight on Monday night the N4 next to the Kanyamazane entrance towards Matsulu as service delivery protests erupted in the area.

Speaking to John Perlman, CEO of Road Freight Association Gavin Kelly gives an update.

These attacks on trucks have nothing to do with trucking, is about people being upset about service delivery either not being rendered or being given to people that they didn't want it to be given to.

And then today, it's around foreign drivers again so we have a group of people stopping trucks, not allowing trucks to move on the public roads of South Africa and pulling drivers out and acting as the police and the employment mandated authority.

This is still the same story where when people are unhappy with something, they take it out on trucks.
