Anti-BRT Faction Expected to Protest

Factions opposed to the expansion of bus rapid transit are expected to join protests over services, according to the Gauteng Department of Community Safety.

Sedibeng, which incorporates Sharpeville, was rocked by service delivery protests this week, with a councillor's house burned down, cars stoned and at least 13 people arrested.

Matshikiza said the police would react severely if infrastructure, including the BRT, was threatened.
