[LISTEN] Who is behind the current truck strike disrupting SA roads?
The South African Transport and Allied Workers Union on Monday distanced itself from a strike involving members of the trucking industry.
Traffic was disrupted as various roads were blockaded and in Durban two trucks were set alight.
However it's unclear who is behind the protest.
