This is because of the collapse of the railway system in SA.

Trains and railways in Gauteng have been completely destroyed, making it impossible for thousands to get to their place of work and back home. According to reports, this is due to theft and vandalism. MetroRail has been trying to use diesel locomotives as backups, but this has not been sufficient to replace the capacity of the destroyed trains. On Sunday, the Umkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) in Gauteng called for Mbalula’s (the Minister of Transport) arrest, adding that several affiliated organisations — including the SA National Civic Organisation (Sanco), the Congress of SA Students (Cosas), and the SA National Cargo Transport and Drivers Association (SANCATDRA) — would embark on a march to the provincial premier’s office today. Mbalula has yet to address the demands of the MKMVA.
