The Public Transport Voice says it condemns the violence that occurred in Khayelitsha, due to Metrorail temporarily terminating its services.

On Wednesday roads had to be closed leaving taxi drivers to Site B having to use the Govan Mbeki road as tires were burned by angry residents of the affected areas.

PTV added that they could not accept these acts to be treated as mere vandalism anymore and is asking police to arrest those who lead protests and they will be opposing bail.

“On the last weekend we had a meeting with Metrorail where we discussed similar issues. Issues of train delays, issues of accountability, and we resolved that Metrorail will try its best in terms of improving the services.” Spokesperson for Public Transport Voice Zingisani Nkanjeni said.

“And we are so disappointed when we saw and when we heard and when experienced what happened in Khayelitsha and we believe that this will come to an end.” Nkanjeni added.
