Cosatu go-slow is a no-go
Cosatu cancelled its planned march against e-tolls on major Gauteng routes at a late time on Friday.
The march was to begin in Braamfontein, join the M1 North, take the Olifantsfontein offramp onto the M1 south and then take the Roodepoort off-ramp onto the N1 south until the Nasrec interchange and join the N12 and then the M2 back on the M1 onto Smit Street.
Several organisations including the United Taxi Forum, Bikers Against Etolls, South African Council of Churches and the Treatment Action Campaign, earlier this week, announced they would be joining the march the against the province’s e-tolling system.
Yesterday the Johannesburg Metro Police Department denied organisers persmission to march saying the union had defied road regulations during their last march.
Cosatu now says their planned Ekhuruleni march on May 31 will go ahead.
