Durban march, Apparently it is by Mkhonto Wesizwe Ex-soldiers, Taxi associations, truck drivers and Durban youth against unemployment, drugs and the influx of illegal immigrants.

Those who don’t know, MK has stood up and is heading to clean the Durban streets.

They promised to Shut all drug and prostitution hotspots in point done by foreigners. This is fueled by the rise in human trafficking cases in South Africa.

The Operation clean Durban started at about 10 pm last night and this morning they have planned to sweep COVID 19 dirt from our streets. Tourism they say is their gold.

Members of the Umkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans Association have begun blockading roads in Durban, KwaZulu Natal

State Police spokesman Jay Nicker says police will not hesitate to deal with anyone who appears to be blocking public roads and causing unrest.

“Police in KwaZulu-Natal have taken note of various audio posts circulating on social media, noting that some groups have met and agreed to work together to protest in Durban and surrounding areas for a variety of reasons.”

โ€œPolice deployment is in place to deal with such a protest and will be beefed up along the identified routes and locations. Several SAPS units will be working jointly with the Durban Metropolitan Police, Road Traffic Inspectorate and other role players. We will not be negotiating with anybody who blocks our roads and such individuals will be dealt with in terms of the law,โ€ explains Naicker.

At the same time, the State Executive Committee (PEC) of the Umkhonto We Sizwe Military Veterans Association in Umkhonto, Kuazulu-Natal, withdrew from a protest by a group of disgruntled members on Friday.

The group says they are dissatisfied with the level of corruption and unemployment in the country.

Azzman Mtembu, MKMVA secretary in Kwazulu-Natal, says the PEC has not consulted on plans to end the province.

โ€œThe problem is with this entire planned protest. The comrades never contacted us as the provincial structure. As the PEC, we have no idea what the strike is about and that some of our comrades have planned to shut down the province of KwaZulu-Natal.โ€

โ€œI assume also that regional leaders were not consulted. That is a huge problem, because I think if the comrades had engaged us, we would have engaged them on other means to voice their concerns, they did not give us that opportunity to engage them.โ€
