The City of Cape Town says contingency plans have been put in place to minimise disruptions caused by a nationwide municipal workers’ strike.

Refuse collection in the southern parts of the city went ahead this morning, but rubbish has already begun to pile up in parts of the city centre.

City spokesperson Kylie Hatton they will monitor refuse collection throughout the day and report to residents if they pick up major disruptions.

Meanwhile, in Pretoria, bus drivers and workers in the Transport Department reported for duty as per usual.

The Tshwane Metro’s Pieter de Necker says they had prepared themselves for the suspension of all bus services. He says that so far, buses are operating normally.
