JOHANNESBURG – The N3 highway near Mooi River remains closed in both directions on Thursday morning after a violent protest in which seven trucks were burnt down.
Just after midnight, a group of people set the trucks alight and then fled the scene.
There had been no reports of any injuries.
KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Thulani Zwane said the motive was not yet known.
“It is unknown as what happened but we received information that there was a group of people who chased away the drivers and then they set alight those trucks. A case of public violence was opened at Mooi River Police Station for further investigation.”
