Truck Shutdown: Another truck set on fire by protesters at Alrode

Truck Shutdown: Another truck set on fire by protesters at Alrode

The date set aside for the shutdown of trucks across the country is here. The South African are protesting against the employment of foreigners.

Reacting us now from Old Vereeniging Road at Alrode, another truck was reportedly set on fire by some protesters.


One truck was petrol bombed in Wadeville, GP last night while two trucks (reportedly) burnt at Vosloorus, another was stoned. All this happened before midnight.

The court interdict to stop the truck shutdown and the cold may have played their part I to influence this outcome.

There are fewer trucks on the road, however, as operators assess the situation before redeploying.

There is large presence of anti-riot police CTCT entrance to monitor any situation that may arise.

Motorists are advised to stay away from Vickers Rd and the M2 Highway at City Deep Truck Stop as Protesters are said to be targeting trucks.

We are calling on the Minister of Transport and relevant stake holders to quickly sort this out before it escalate into xenophobia.
