Taxi associations in Joburg dissolved following deadly dispute
Following a deadly feud between two taxi associations in Johannesburg, Gauteng’s public transport MEC, Jacob Mamabolo decided to intervene and dissolve the executives.
This comes after the death of two taxi members.
The two associations, Nanduwe (Nancefield Dube West Taxi Association) and Wata (Witwatersrand African Taxi Owners Association) were allegedly seriously clashing over a Johannesburg south route.
According to Mamabolo’s office, the clash led to the death of two members from Nanduwe.
They were gunned down near the Nancefield hostel in Soweto on Tuesday.
“I am deeply dismayed by the latest incident which resulted in the spillage of blood.”
“We cannot allow the taxi industry to turn our province into the capital of murder and violent gangs,” Mamabolo said.
In light of the murder, he called on police to investigate the case and get the killers arrested.
His office disclosed that the MEC had the authority to intervene in such situations
“The North Gauteng high court recently ratified an agreement between Gauteng’s major taxi structures, the Gauteng National Taxi Alliance (GNTA) and the SA National Taxi Council (Santaco-Gauteng), giving the MEC powers to dissolve taxi associations involved in acts of violence,” the department said.
