JOHANNESBURG - The South African Post Office strike ended on Wednesday.

The delivery of mail was severely affected in the Gauteng region.

Spokesperson for the mail service Janras Kotsi said negotiators accepted a proposed interim solution on Tuesday evening.

He said details of the negotiated solution could not be revealed until legal documents were signed.

Striking workers returned to work on Wednesday.
