The N2 at Cape Town was the scene of a transit robbery during the late-night hours of Monday and caused the N2 to close as a crime scene.
Motorists had to use alternative routes to reach workplaces as the route was closed for hours.
In Bloemfontein, a G4S transit wagon was blown up in an explosion when more than 12 attackers led the wagon into a trap. An unknown amount was robbed while two guards were wounded. Some of the attackers fired on a police helicopter that arrived at the scene.
The government’s promise that the robberies will be halted has not produced any visible results to date.
