The South African Communist Party in the Western Cape said it is fully behind the strike by MyCiti bus drivers who are demanding a wage increase. 

The drivers embarked on a strike on Wednesday leaving Atlantis, Du Noon and Table View routes affected.

The drivers are demanding a wage increase meanwhile the city says the dispute is between the bus drivers and a private company.

SACP Provincial Spokesperson Masonwabe Sokoyi said the strike was a last resort, but that it would remain peaceful and the police response was unnecessary.

Sokoyi said the police mustn’t chase us like this.

Sokoyi said we’ve done nothing wrong. We are unarmed, we would never burn anything, and we’re not going to do any damage.

Sokoyi said things would be worse when they arrived in Dunoon, because residents would join in the strike and things would escalate.

“It’s going to be worse there the community will come and join us. We wanted to keep this away from the community Sokoyi added.
