Metrobus commuters at Ghandi square in the Johannesburg CBD are protesting, reportedly over changes in the bus schedules. They say the changes are causing them to be late for work.
Joburg metro police spokesperson Wayne Minnaar says: “There’s currently a protest at Ghandi Square in the Johannesburg CBD. The damage to property I cannot confirm at this stage, but I can confirm a protest at Ghandi Square.”
Meanwhile, Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) have sent more officers to Gandhi Square where bus commuters are barricading the road, blocking access to Metro Bus drivers.
Around 200 people are allegedly involved in Wednesday morning’s demonstration.
