Bush Radio received a media release stating that taxi operators will be going forward with taxi strikes tomorrow after all.
According to the statement, the National Taxi Association (NTA), an unregistered body, sent an sms instructing taxi associates that no taxi may operate tomorrow.
“Unless the SAPS and the Provincial Transport Department act decisively to deal with NTA and to recommend negotiations with the official taxi bodies only, we must prepare ourselves for taxi violence worse than we have ever experienced.”
Commuters from areas including Milnerton, Tableview, Blouberg, Langa, Gugulethu, Mitchell’s Plain, Khayelitsha, Belville, Parow, Nyanga and the Southern Suburbs are warned to be cautious, as the strike is expected to get violent.
