This follows after the employees complained that they had not been paid for the past two months after being promised an increase of R1 000. On July 9 they took the hostages and demonstrated in a corridor near their workplace. The hostages, coordinator of the Extended Public Works Programme (EPWP), the deputy director and a senior Human Resources official, were forced to sit on the icy floor for hours.
They were told they would not be released until the protesters’ demands were met.
