SANDF must now step up to safeguard trains, passengers due to criminals and protesters reeking havoc

The new trains launched by Ramaphosa must now be guarded on their routes by the SA Defense Force, according to Untu foreman Sonja Carstens.

She called for Ramaphosa to declare the condition at Prasa an “emergency” as criminals and protesters threaten the safety of trains and passengers.

The launch of the one new train is seen as an ANC election gimmick, and its own supporters believe it is just like the fuss made by the Nissan plant being expanded.

Doing it the African way – 44 People Including 7 Children Found in 22-Seater Mini Bus

Limpopo Public Transport Unit officers attached to Limpopo Traffic Police, stopped a 22-seater cross-border taxi with double the amount of passengers on board.

According to the spokesperson for the Department of Transport, Matome Moremi-Taueutsoala, the bus was stopped on the N1 next to Snake Park just outside Polokwane. The bus was enroute to Zimbabwe from Johannesburg.

“We have called cross border officials to authenticate cross border papers but the driver doesn’t have a permit to drive this kind of vehicle,”he said.

There were 44 people on board, seven of them children.

Moremi-Taueutsoala says this is totally unacceptable and that traffic officers will continue to crack down on those who break the law.
