21 July 2014
News: The community of Shawela village outside Giyani blocked the road linking Giyani and Phalaborwa on Thursday, in protest against the government’s failure to respond to their request for speed breakers on the road. They barricaded the road with logs and rocks and burned tyres. Police later dispersed them. Between 11:00 and 13:00 motorists had to use alternative roads to avoid stone-throwing protesters. The protest evolved after a hit-and-run accident by a speeding car in which a young boy died on the scene and was buried on Sunday by an angry community. Mr David Nkuna, a local resident, said he had lost count on how many people have been killed on this stretch of road. “But they were many. I don’t have the record on hand but we’re losing lives and livestock on this road every now and then because of speeding motorists,” he said.
