Protesters block Mpumalanga road

2012-02-14 11:23

Mbombela - Mpumalanga police warned motorists on Tuesday to avoid the road from Masoyi to Hazyview, as it had been barricaded by service delivery protesters.

The road had been dug up and littered with stones and burning tyres since protests started on Saturday night, said Captain Leonard Hlathi. Cars had also been damaged.

"It is not acceptable. Motorists should rather take the Kiepersol road to Hazyview."

Those travelling to the Kruger National Park should take the Kruger Park Road in Hazyview.

    The road has been dug up? Wow - this is probably the same road they need to use everyday. If the service delivery is so bad I wonder how long it will take to repair the road. no reasoning at all!

      @jowza why? I spent 2 years plus camps in the SADF and had Afrikaans as a second language at school. I do understand the taal.

      Brett - 2012-02-14 13:01

      My taal is English. Your taal seems to be gibberish.

      Rip - 2012-02-14 13:17

      @Jowza. daar is nie 'n woord soos "greece" in Afrikaans nie! Praat jy van Griekeland? En, indien so, wat is fout met Brett se antwoord?
