This morning, the N3 was packed with trucks blocking the road, making it impossible for any other vehicles to pass through. What most people thought was a strike by the truck drivers is actually part of a bigger plan by unidentified people. 

This information was shared by Roy, one of the truck drivers Darren, Keri, and Sky were able to reach to get a clearer picture of what is going on.

Whilst the above might be the statement made by one of the truck drivers, Newswatch shared what SAPS spokesperson, Jay Naicker, had to say about the disruptions earlier this morning. 

"It's alleged that the truck drivers parked their vehicles on the road and in most cases removed the keys from the vehicle. 

"At this stage, SAPS is on the scene and attempts are being made to remove these trucks. We are advised people to avoid that area. 

"Traffic that is backed up in that area is currently being diverted."

We do hope that the situation will simmer down as the day goes on, as we honestly cannot afford a repeat of the KZN unrest.
