Undertakers on strike shut down funeral homes in Cape Town

Funeral undertakers protested in Cape Town demanding government institute reforms in their industry on Wednesday (September 16).

Protesters were filmed outside the offices of AVBOB and Tony Wyllie & Co in the city's Maitland suburb.

The action is part of a three-day national shutdown, which started on Monday by the Unification Task Team (UTT).

Kenny McDillon of Deo Gloria Funeral Services said: "Black funeral undertakers have to compete against large established funeral undertakers who had a forty-year head start."
