13:09 TOTAL SHUTDOWN The Eastern Cape Department of Transport, Safety and Liaison said it was shocked to have learnt that residents of Matatiele were planning to shut-down the town on Monday. And, in a statement on Sunday, the Department appealed to “each community member to resist the temptation and any pressures to join in this planned shutdown”. MEC Weziwe Tikana has visited the area on three occasions to address community concerns about a road construction project that has all but ground to a halt due to violent protests which had earlier led to the torching of three government vehicles. Eastern Cape Transport Department spokesperson, Unathi Binqose, said that there’s no need for a shutdown as the Department was “fully committed to addressing the problem of roads in Matatiele”. “Matatiele is one of the department’s priority areas and that is precisely the reason Eastern Cape Department of Transport, Safety and Liaison MEC, Weziwe Tikana has invested so much of her time in the area, personally visiting and interacting with community try and get to the bottom of this problem,” he said. Binqose said the most recent of these visits was only on Friday where she held an IMBIZO and reiterated her department’s commitment to address the problem. He said Tikana urged the community to rethink the plans to embark on a shutdown of the Matatiele saying it would cripple the town’s economy” and “deal a hammer blow to thos community members with genuine demands for safe and accessible road”.


HISTORIC NATIONAL STRIKE The South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg on Friday ruled against a decision by the National Economic Development and Labour Coucil (Nedlac) to refuse an application by trade union Solidarity for its 180 000 members to go on strike countrywide in protest against a black economic empowerment share scheme at Sasol. While the ruling means Nedlac will now have to review its decision, it doesn’t give Solidarity the all-clear to call its members out on a sympathy strike. Solidarity CEO Dirk Hermann said in a statement: “The Sasol workers are symbolising something so many Solidarity members are experiencing. We are planning a huge protest action to support Sasol members and to protest racial exclusion. It will be a historical protest expressing a voice not heard before.” The date of the strike will be announced as soon as the Nedlac process has been finalised. Solidarity approached the court on an urgent basis for the right of its members to go on strike in solidarity with white Sasol employees who have downed tools against what they claim is racial exclusion in Sasol’s Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) share scheme, known as Sasol Khanyisa Phase 2. Nedlac had initially opposed the urgent application, arguing that it lacks the necessary authority to consider Solidarity’s “demands”. However, the high court found that there was “no merit in contention by the first respondent that it does not have the power to entertain the applicant’s section 77 (1)(b) application. That decision therefore stands to be reviewed”. The urgent application was granted with costs.
