Durban - Two trucks were set alight in Montclair, south of Durban, on Monday as police went on high alert for a truck drivers’ strike.
According to police the trucks were set alight at 2am.
Police have since increased the number of officers and patrols along major routes in KwaZulu-Natal.
The police precautions come in the wake of the burning of trucks in Kokstad and Ashburton at the weekend.
SAPS spokesperson Lieutenant- Colonel Thulani Zwane said: “We have intensified our deployments along the major routes to prevent any disruptions and criminality. This will enable us to respond quicker and arrest the perpetrators should anything occur.”
