COSATU embarked on another protest action on Friday the 20th April 2012 at the Swartruggens Toll Plaza. It is our view that COSATU unfortunately did not honour all the conditions agreed with the Municipality of Kgetleng. Bakwena managed, together with the authorities, to keep the traffic flowing steadily and safely.
In order to keep to its contractual obligations Bakwena had no option other than to obtain a High Court Order against COSATU to force it to comply with all the stipulated conditions.
A special thanks to all the authorities as well as Bakwena’s own staff who managed the event preventing any damage or injuries to the road users and the protesters.
We have been notified that COSATU may carry out further protesting at Swartruggens Toll Plaza on the 30th April 2012 in line with their strategy. We will once again do our best to ensure the safety of our employees and road users.
