NewsHorn has just received information that the N4 from Nelspruit to Johannesburg and back will be barricaded from midnight tonight.

It is not yet clear what the reason for the strike is, but it is allegedly about certain areas serviced by taxis from other areas.

Talk is also that senior government members in Mpumalanga own taxis which makes this issue a thorny one not to be resolved soon. NewsHorn has not been able to verify these allegations.
