Cosatu exceeds drive-slow target

2013-05-31 13:04

About 300 cars were taking part in the “drive slow” protest action on Johannesburg freeways, trade union federation Cosatu has said.

“I think there’s about 300. So far so good, our target was 100 and we’ve exceeded that,” Congress of SA Trade Unions Gauteng secretary Dumisani Dakile said today.

“It shows the level of support we have,” he said.

The motorcade was on the R24 in Kempton Park around noon.

A number of drivers have joined the protest, including the Southern African Catholic Bishops’ Conference (SACBC).

Cosatu is staging the drive-slow protest against e-tolling on Gauteng freeways.

The “drive slow” was expected to move from the R24 to the R21 north and then make a U-turn back on to the R21 south and return to the R21, R24, N12, and the N3 south back to Katlehong, where the meeting point was.
