ANC protesters: free train rides granted by MetroRail


Recommended Posts

Law enforcement officials will saturate the Cape Town City Centre ahead of a protest march being led by the African National Congress (ANC) today.

Scores of informal settlement residents are expected to descend on the CBD this morning.

They plan to march to the offices of Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille and Western Cape Premier Helen Zille, to raise their grievances over housing and service delivery issues.

Late last year, a similar planned march in the city turned violent.

Rail operator, Metrorail says supporters wearing ANC t-shirts or carrying march pamphlets and posters, will be allowed to used its services at no cost during off peak hours today.

ANC leaders have also indicated that some protesters will be brought in from communities across the city.

More than 2000 people are expected to take part in the march before handing over memorandums at the offices of the mayor and premier.


Cherry on the cake? Awesome spelling:

Oooooh boy, cannot spell, there were not even 1 000 protestors, but they were treated like royalty ... shouldn't they have given them cake and tea along the road ?? I mean it was 26 degrees out there ...

So tired of this banana politics. And yet it is still dangerous, especially if you think that 70% of all police vacancies in RSA is in the Western Cape. The government works hard on implementing lawlessness and lack of enforcement to make the WC unmanageable, as they promised a while ago.
