The upcoming strike by South African truck drivers on 30 April 2023 has raised concerns about the potential rise of lawlessness and criminal activities. In response, the National Joint Operational and Intelligence Structure (NATJOINTS) has implemented measures to mitigate any potential risks and ensure the safety of citizens.

Law enforcement officers deployed

No tolerance for lawlessness

The NATJOINTS has assured the nation that no lawlessness will be tolerated. This includes the barricading of roads, torching of trucks, and looting of goods. Those partaking in the protest have been called upon to do so peacefully and respect the rights of those who do not wish to participate in the strike.

Enforcement of the law

It is important to note that law enforcement officers will respond accordingly within the ambit of the law if anyone is found to be on the wrong side of the law. Furthermore, law enforcement will be applied within relevant prescripts to ensure that people’s freedom of movement is not prohibited and stability prevails throughout the country.

Working together for a peaceful strike

In conclusion, NATJOINTS is taking proactive measures to protect citizens during the upcoming strike. While they acknowledge the rights of individuals to protest peacefully, they also emphasize that lawlessness will not be tolerated. All parties involved in the strike must adhere to the law and respect the rights of others. By working together, we can ensure that the strike occurs peacefully and safely.
