PICS: Buses, trucks set alight in protest action

Buses and trucks have been set alight during a protest at Sekhukhune in Limpopo.

Johannesburg – Two Buses were burnt during a protest at Sekhukhune in Limpopo on Sunday.

Police spokesperson Colonel Ronel Otto said Motorists who take the R555 are advised to avoid the areas of Burgersfort, Sekhukhune and Roossenekal after protest actions erupted on Sunday morning.

Otto said a number of trucks and buses were set alight and there were reports of vehicles being stoned.

She said the community was protesting because they were unhappy with their leadership who are negotiations with the mines in the area about employment issues.

Otto told News24 that police have been deployed to monitor the situation.
