Cash-in-transit security guards will go on strike next Friday if government does not intend to come up with solutions to the risk of attacks by robbers.
The general secretary, Emily Fourie of Motor Transport Workers Union, has called for urgent intervention and for President Thabo Mbeki to declare a state of emergency to stop the growing number of cash-in-transit.
According to Kris Pillay of the Unisa School of Criminal Justice said that guards were stressed and demotivated.
