An ongoing strike by the SA Municipal Workers’ Union appears to have fallen flat in certain parts of the country.

Municipalities in Gauteng and the Western Cape have reported minimal disruptions, despite the fact that the strike is now in its second week.

Samwu members have accused the union’s executive committee of poor leadership.

Questions have also been asked about R6 million that are allegedly missing from the Samwu coffers.

The union maintains that they are suffering no such internal problems and that the strike is gaining momentum.
