Cops to monitor Cosatu toll plaza protest
Police in the North West will be at the Swartruggens toll plaza where Cosatu protest is taking place.
NORTH WEST - Police in the North West on Monday said they would be keeping a close eye on a planned protest by the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) at the Swartruggens toll plaza.
The trade union federation held several demonstrations at the toll gate, which is South Africa's most expensive at R71 for light motor vehicles.
Cosatu is protesting against the high prices of the tolls, saying they should be reduced.
Monday's protest was expected to last for several hours and result in major traffic delays on the N4 highway.
Police spokesperson Aafje Botma said they would be monitoring the scene for any incidents that might occur.
