sanral thumb100 eNCA reports that the SA National Roads Agency (Sanral) has condemned the use of violence by striking workers at a tollgate in northern KwaZulu-Natal.  

In a statement released on Tuesday, the agency said it was saddened by the injury of four temporary workers at the uMvoti toll plaza.  Sanral CEO Skhumbuzo Macozoma said:  “We are deeply disappointed and very concerned about the use of violence by striking workers.  While it is a right to engage in protest action in our constitutional democracy - violence, intimidation and property damage can never be condoned.”  The police are investigating charges of wilful damage to property and Sanral called for stronger law enforcement agencies in the affected area.  The agency also called on employer Intertoll and the SA Transport and Allied Workers’ Union (Satawu) to find a speedy and amicable solution to their dispute.
