A Megabus transporting a full load of mineworkers was seriously damaged when protesters pelted it with stones in Bronville.

The incident occurred on Tuesday, 23 October, at 04:15 – when the mineworkers were being taken to work.

Damage of more than R40 000 was caused when large rocks were thrown at the bus, breaking windows and damaging the bodywork. No one was injured.

“The police acted immediately and contained the area and the bus. We are very thankful for their fast action, and relieved that no one was injured,” says Linda Bouwer of Megabus.

The Goldfields Community Forum was behind the protest action, decrying unemployment in the region.

Capt. Malebo Khosana, communication officer for the Thabong Cluster, confirms the incident.

“The Megabus was pelted with stones in Bronville,” says Khosana

“The Bronville SAPS, and deployed forces, swiftly intervened and the damage was minimised. No one was arrested.”
