The Provincial Joint Operational and Intelligence Structure (PROVJOINTS) in North West says it remains on high alert following the disruption of the May Day rally at the Royal Bafokeng Sport Palace on Sunday afternoon, 01 May 2022. The disruption led to the event ultimately being called off.

President Ramaphosa was chased away by angry workers. They chanted “you must go”. The workers from Sibanye Stillwaters have been on strike for weeks. They are demanding R1000 wage increase.

North West Police Spokesperson Sabata Mokgwabone said the situation was stable with no reports of injuries, loss of lives or damage to property.

The Chairperson of the PROVJOINTS, Lieutenant General Sello Kwena expressed disappointment about the conduct of those behind the disruption and consequent abandonment of the event.
