There is no resolution to the Western Cape taxi strike

The Western Cape Government has confirmed that there is still no resolution to the taxi strike in the province.

Members of the South African National Taxi Council declared a province-wide strike last week until Wednesday this week.

The organisation is unhappy with the City of Cape Town by laws. The provincial cabinet will continue to meet over the situation.

Premier Alan Winde has condemned the violence that is accompanying the strike.

He added that the provincial government is pursuing legal action and an interdict against striking taxi operators, along with the City of Cape Town.

"I am angry that as a result of the strike, residents have been unable to get home to their families or to work, school, shops, clinics and other critical sites. Many government services, including health and social development, are having to close facilities and are unable to provide desperately needed services to our communities,"

"Our schooling system is also being affected. This is not acceptable" he added.
