MEC Nancy Sihlwayi yesterday handed over eight specialised minibus taxis to six
district municipalities and two metros to transport disabled people during
times of need.
The taxis will be
used by department offices and each vehicle will cost R11 659 to lease per month for the next five years.
Sihlwayi said her

had to bring quality services to the most vulnerable groups of the community.
The handover took place in a
tent in front of Jabavu Hall in Duncan Village and was attended by about 1000
residents from the area dressed in ANC regalia singing about the party.
Amos Mzimele, 44, a resident
from Mooiplaas said vehicles for disabled people were a necessity for all
