Police to escort Tshwane rubbish trucks

The City of Tshwane's rubbish trucks are going to get their own police escorts to safeguard them during a contractor dispute.

This comes after a group of sub-contractors offloaded a pile of smelly rubbish on the Onderstepoort road near Rosslyn, outside Pretoria, on Friday in a bid to block off the road. The disgruntled group accused the Democratic Alliance-led metro of refusing to do business with black people. In September last year, executive mayor Solly Msimanga announced that R2bn worth of tenders, which his office had inherited, was being analysed.

The contractor group is demanding that Agriculture and Environment MMC Mike Mkhari meet with them and listen to their concerns. In a statement, Mkhari said that during the past week, there had been other trashings around the city, and refuse removal services had been disrupted. He stated that this was not the way to be heard.
