On Monday morning, thousands of commuters in the City of Tshwane are delayed because more than 70% of its Areyeng buses are not running.
After being suspended indefinitely due to salary conflicts, services were scheduled to start up again on Monday morning.
Selby Bokaba, a spokeswoman for the City of Tshwane, claimed that while the majority of the drivers applied for jobs, they declined to operate the buses.
Most Areyeng bus drivers in Tshwane refuse to work, stranding riders.”Only 36 people left. Ten people contacted this morning at around 6 a.m. to report unwell, while others called for other personnel-related concerns. 36 people are currently employed; their first shift began at 4.15 am. Although most of the drivers arrived for work, they declined to operate the bus.
