Bus strike to affect ZCC Easter plans

Thousands of people are set to be affected by the nation-wide bus strike this Easter weekend, particularly members of the Zion Christian Church who attend their annual pilgrimage at Moria in Limpopo.

Liam Clarke, Operations Manager at Bakwena Platinum Corridor Concession says traffic is currently heavy but flowing smoothly.

He says they are ready and geared up for the expected heavy traffic later on Thursday.

We are anticipating we will be able to cope with the traffic flows that will be taking place even with the bus driver strike.
