Taxi violence – who is to blame?

  • 0

The City of Cape Town is still embroiled in a dispute with the South African National Taxi Council (Santaco) which recently led to widespread disruptions.

Santaco has now approached the court to challenge the legality of taxis being impounded, something which the mayor of Cape Town, Geordin Hill-Lewis, seems to welcome.

Freek Robinson asked Hill-Lewis: Why now? And what next?

Also: What is Hill-Lewis’s response to President Ramaphosa’s statement that the government will not respond to Hill-Lewis’s threat to declare a formal dispute relating to train services

Robinson also asked Hill-Lewis why bus companies receive large subsidies while similar subsidies are not paid to the taxi industry.

(The short introduction is in Afrikaans, the interview is in English.)
