The City of Cape has condemned the unrest and violence happening in Nyanga today which resulted in three Golden Arrow buses being burnt and City of Cape Town Traffic Service staff being threatened.

Law enforcement has been conducting operations focused mainly on amaphela taxis’s in the area.

The operation today saw a total of sixteen vehicles being impounded, fifty-one warrants served and three drivers arrested for outstanding warrants.

Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security JP Smith said this will result in us having to extend our taxi operation there, we were only planning on doing it next week Monday and Tuesday but we will now be extending it again for a number of days this week and possibly next week.

Smith said we have also agreed to a meeting with the taxi owners later this week to discuss the matter but that will not be possible as the city cannot meet with people engaged with public violence.
