Traffic Boycott in Port Louis

Today was the first day of the Test week. I hould not be bloggin.. but “things” happened today!

All those who went through port louis today(around noon) must have noticed the unusual traffic jam. It was some kind of strike. Before leaving home, i was listening to radio plus and they anounced that there was some manifestation in port louis because of the price of diesel and there was a raffic jam. I thought that if would be a group of people walking around will banners and all… lol.. far from that..

These guys manifesting came with TRUCKS!! and block one lane of the road between Police Station fanfaron till Chapo lapaille.. i guess thats quite easy to visualise. Taxis, busses from the north.. other vehicles.. all of them go through this route.. imagine how awsme the traffic was!

here are some pictures i took with my mob.

The show is not over! I took the nus 52 MEdine to go to Gare Victoria… and that took me literraly 30 minits!!

Then, from there took bus 141.. and guess what i saw in front! Take a look at the pics again!

see in the middle of the pic. More trucks bloking the traffic. frank frank tou.. lol.. was a well planned trafik slowdown. Because of these 4 trucks here, the traffic(to port louis) was slowed almost till moka.

Reasons:

so far i thought that this strike was because the concerned parties didnt reduce the price of Diesel. but some friends told me that the price of diesel was reduced saturday(something like that) . so till now. i dnt know the reason. If you know, drop a comment.

Consequences :

I’ve just heard from the news that SEVERAL STUDENTS COULD NOT REACH ON TIME FOR SC AND HSC EXAMS!!! THATS A SCANDAL!
