On sunday a truck driver was killed on the N1, when a rock was thrown through his windshield.
Cargo on board was then looted, including clothing.
A number of drivers have suffered serious injuries from these attacks.
Western Cape traffic chief Kenny Africa told EWN, “It seems to me they aim to have the drivers lose control so that they can loot the trucks. On Sunday morning they looted everything within 45 minutes.”
