Gauteng school children without transport
Thousands of Gauteng school children could again find themselves without transport today as the SA Bus Operators Association resumes its strike. Spokesperson for the Association Eric Cornelius says the Gauteng education department has not yet fully paid money owed to them and the strike would therefore be resumed. Cornelius said the department owed operators 22 million rands, while the Department says the figure is less than 15 million. Spokesperson Mbela Phetle says the Department was ready to pay this money on Thursday , but the Association members did not arrive to collect their cheques. He says independent bus operators have been contracted to transport children to school today.
