Eleven people to appear in court after Mangaung strike

Bloemfontein Magistrate's Court.

Eleven people who were arrested in connection with various charges relating to the municipal strike in Mangaung Metro are expected to appear in court today.

A total of fourteen municipal workers were arrested last week, of whom only three have already appeared in the Magistrate’s court, last week Friday.

The three were granted a bail of R1000 per person. They had allegedly resumed with protest action after it was declared illegal by the labour court.

It is also alleged that some of the municipal workers were also involved in the torching of the Bloemfontein City Hall, last week Wednesday.
