Four people have been arrested following a labour dispute at a construction site in…

Four people have been arrested following a labour dispute at a construction site in Langebaan on the Cape West Coast that saw 10 company vehicles being set alight and office containers being torched. The violence broke out yesterday at the construction company, WBHO. Police spokesperson, Andre Traut, says those arrested face charges of public violence. He says officers continue to monitor the site: “SAPS members were deployed to the area to quell the violence and maintain law and order. The workers fled the scene and this morning and four people have been arrested on charges of public violence. They are due to make a court appearance once they have been charged.” Community activist, Sammy Claassen, says the workers will meet this evening to discuss the way forward: “The site has been closed police have brought some sort of control to the situation. We are in consultation with the police to find out what the situation is. There will be a mass meeting tonight in Saldana Bay to plan ahead because the community is feeling frustrated.”

  1. Destruction is the only word these people know!!
    We are supposed to be building a country here. Instead burn schools, workplaces and universities.
    Why don’t these perpetrators just F off and let those who want a great South Africa build it for all South Africans and their kids…. the least they can do is say thank you.

  2. Sounds like Sammy Claassen is responsible for instigating this.
    This type of destructive action must be swiftly dealt with with an iron fist. Lock them up and throw away the key. We don’t want this ilk in our South African community.
