On Thursday, truck drivers again blocked the road in both directions along the N3 highway in South Africa’s Kwazulu-Natal over concerns that foreign nationals were “taking jobs away from citizens”. This, News24 reports, led to the Road Freight Association writing to President Cyril Ramaphosa to ask him to to urgently intervene, saying road freight companies were being targeted and that the entire supply chain was under attack. “When you add up all the damage and negative costs to the economy, we are well around R300 million already,” CEO Gavin Kelly said. By yesterday afternoon the South African police confirmed though that the road had been cleared.
