samwu thumb medium80 78eNCA reports that the South African Municipal Workers' Union (Samwu) is threatening to shut down Mangaung municipality in Bloemfontein this week.  

The workers have been protesting since last week over what they have listed as failed promises of salary adjustments, illegal appointments, nepotism and victimisation of members.  Protests have resulted in isolated incidents of violence and destruction of property.  On Monday, the union expects to hear whether municipal officials are willing to continue with negotiations.  It has vowed to continue striking until its demands are met.
