MyCiti bus drivers launched a wildcat strike in Cape Town on Monday, October 15. Most MyCiti bus services are suspended as of Monday morning, with striking drivers reportedly blocking roads to obstruct drivers not taking part in the strike. Significant disruptions (delays, cancelations) are expected throughout the day and residual disruptions are possible in the coming days. The motive behind the strike remains unknown. An increased security presence has been deployed across the city.
Individuals present in Cape Town are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate transportation disruptions, and avoid any associated demonstrations due to the risk of violence.
