Pietermaritzburg - Cows being herded down the street in the city centre on Thursday caused havoc in the traffic.

The Witness received numerous calls from motorists who said the cattle were being chased by herders in West Street.

Mandy Olivier said she was on her way back from Girls’ High School driving in West Street when she was shocked to see a herd of about 15 cows coming toward her vehicle.

“The cows are so terrified. They are causing chaos and the traffic cannot flow … This is a serious matter as the town is not the environment for cattle herding.

“Town is not the only place this is happening as this was witnessed before in Prestbury and Cleland.”

Another reader said it was quite a sight to see the herd of cattle in the busy street.
