Johannesburg Bus Strike Enters Second Week

Johannesburg's public transit system is still in shambles as a strike of bus drivers enters its second week.

Union officials described meetings on Friday, Saturday and Sunday as a "waste of time" but Metro Bus spokesman Kenney Kutu was hopeful of a breakthrough on Monday.

SA Municipal Workers' Union (Samwu) Gauteng branch secretary Dumisani Langa said if meetings on Monday did not yield any results, the union would call for a solidarity strike by all its members.
