Mamelodi protest causes bus delays

Johannesburg - Protests in Mamelodi, Pretoria, have caused bus service delays in the area, Putco said on Wednesday.

"As a result of the protest action, all of Putco's feeder trips have been affected and the bus company is currently not able to render an effective and timeous operation in the region," spokesperson Tshepo Tsotsotso said in a statement.

He said Putco management was uncertain about the length of the disruptions but would keep passengers updated.

I feel for Mamelodi & Sosh. Tshwane metro dont do infrastructure there, only the same roads projects over and over for crony contractors in the comfortable [arts of the city, which they never complete - it's just for the money and the kickbacks.
