South Africa’s main transport union is planning to thwart the delivery of a controversial shipment of arms destined for Zimbabwe, saying on Friday its workers would not offload the cargo.

The South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (SATAWU) said it was planning to hold protests at the Durban harbour as it would be “grossly irresponsible” for the cargo to be allowed to reach Zimbabwe where tension is mounting amid the wait for results of a presidential election three weeks ago.
