"If you close one or two streets in the CBD it'll have an impact on the outer perimeter and the streets leading into the Tshwane CBD itself. We are trying to engage the managers at the City bus services," Tshwane Metro Police Department Spokesperson, Isaac Mahamaba.

"This does not only affect the people affiliated to Samwu..we understand that we as TMDP also have members affiliated to Samwu," said Mahamaba.
