Coal lines to SA terminal halted by violent protests

Community demanding jobs and business opportunities, Transnet says.

JOHANNESBURG – Rail operations that transport coal to South Africa’s Richards Bay Coal Terminal (RBCT) have been halted because of violent community protests, state-run logistics group Transnet said on Thursday.

“Transnet has experienced interruptions to operations on the Richards Bay Coal Line as a result of violent community protests … The protests relate to community demands for jobs and business opportunities,” Transnet said in a statement.

RBCT, which moves coal on behalf of producers and shareholders such as Exxaro and Anglo American, exported 72.6 million tonnes of coal last year.
