Members of the South African Municipal Workers’ Union (SAMWU) have brought Braamfontein in Johannesburg to a standstill, as they demand that Mayor Mpho Phalatse urgently address their wage issues.

Roads in and around the City of Johannesburg have been blocked off as the special council sitting is set to get under way.

On Thursday, the workers blockaded the M1 motorway at Braamfontein in both directions.

Motorists are being rerouted to avoid the congestion.
