E-toll protest causes chaos

2012-12-06 14:17

Johannesburg motorists are struggling to reach their destinations as Cosatu's drive-slow protest continues on the city's freeways. Watch. WATCH

Johannesburg - Both groups of Cosatu's anti-toll "drive-slow" returned to their starting points around 19:30 on Thursday.

The Congress of SA Trade Unions-led protest was to show opposition to the government's plans to toll major highways around Johannesburg and Pretoria.

One group started at the Mboro Church in Ekurhuleni, while the other left Cosatu house in the Johannesburg CBD on Thursday morning.

People who lived along the N3 on the East Rand stood along the road and blew vuvuzelas as the convoy drove past. More cars joined during the day.

Part of the protest was a truck blaring music while people danced on the back. Motorists on the M1 and N3 hooted in support.
