Taxi associations unhappy about treatment from WCGov
Widows from Cape taxi associations CATA and codeta marched to the offices of Premier Alan Winde on Thursday morning.
The associations says they aren't happy with how they are being treated in the province. A planned strike was scheduled for Thursday, but was called off after the associations were not granted a permit by the City of Cape Town.
They claim that their members are required to first settle all outstanding warrants before their impounded taxis can be released. The associations view this as extortion by government.
They also allege that the N1 has been turned into a no-go zone for taxis even if they are not operating on the suspended B97 route.
Taxis are however running normally today
