Post Office vehicles torched in Soweto

Published Oct 14, 2014


Johannesburg - Vehicles belonging to the SA Post Office (Sapo) have been set alight outside the Sapo building in Chiawelo, Soweto, on Tuesday, said Johannesburg emergency services.

“Two delivery bakkies and two minibuses belonging to the post office were torched around 1pm this (Tuesday) afternoon,” said spokesperson Robert Mulaudzi.

The Sapo building was not affected in the incident and no injuries were reported.

No arrests had been made but Mulaudzi said the people involved in the incident were believed to be striking Sapo workers.

The nearly two-month-old strike is about the conversion of casual workers to permanent staff.
