South Africans torch 11 trucks Over Foreign Drivers


South Africans have torched 11 trucks on the N3 highway and the N4 highways over the continued employment by companies of foreign drivers.

This happened on the anniversary of similar attacks, which kicked off rioting and vandalism in the province two years ago.

The N3 toll road at Van Reenen’s Pass in KwaZulu-Natal was closed for several hours on Sunday and reopened at about 12.30pm. Just hours later, a further five trucks were torched on the N4 near Waterval Boven in Mpumalanga.

The latest attacks on the road freight sector took place on the second anniversary of the July 2021 riots that caused more than R50 billion in damage to infrastructure and businesses and about 350 deaths. The 2021 violence and looting kicked off with protests on the N3 starting on 8 July that year.
