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.
