Two transportation unions have called for a nationwide strike and a march on Friday, July 26, to protest poor rail services. Organizers did not immediately announce a time or location for the march.
A heightened security presence is likely, particularly along the march route. Transportation disruptions, including to train services and an increased demand for taxis and other modes of transportation, are expected during the strike period.
Individuals in South Africa are advised to avoid all demonstrations, to monitor the situation for developments, to anticipate public transportation disruptions, and to adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
