N3 truck protest follows government’s ‘failure’ to report back on employment of foreign nationals

The failure by government to provide feedback on November 3 to small truck operators regarding the employment of foreign national truck drivers working in SA resulted in the blockade of the N3 highway near Van Reenen on Friday. 
Several sources within the trucking fraternity told TimesLIVE Friday’s truck protest followed a memorandum of demands handed to transport and labour ministers Fikile Mbalula and Thulas Nxesi on October 25 during a protest on the N9 and N10 highways outside Middelburg in the Eastern Cape.
