"The City of Johannesburg apologises to its passengers and will provide updates on the situation."

    Oh God, what are they striking for now?? Can no one in this God forsaken country work a full day?

      My friend, just go the China who our leaders so cherish, and realize what a hard days work is all about!! Working 18 hours for six days a week is not uncommon! The remuneration is a place to sleep (bunks), work clothing, a basic rice meal and a pittance in cash! About time we embrace the Chinese so some of their culture can really wake our workers up!!

    City of Joburg does not have service charter. how can Reyavaya and the company that is operating reyavaya act in a professional manner. The municipality is full of incompetent workers and no action will be taken towards the company. why should the city of joburg be apologetic about the strike to commuters, while the company that operate is liable to do so?

    These guys (and other illegal strikers) should all be put on a Blacklist that would allow future employers to check if the candidate is from the "inborn lazy and corrupt' type of workers. That way they will soon find too many doors closing on their imbecilic actions!!

    God South Africa, get back to work.... you (Trade Unions and Strikers) are killing this country with all this striking and demands ... Then what will you do when there is ZERO foreign investment, and the middle classes who pay the taxes are gone? ( all races are leaving by the way ... yes they are!) The Government should interfere now really... enough is enough... the poor hard working commuter has had enough... they need their jobs to feed their lot ( strikers) are disgusting!
