POLOKWANE – Polokwane Station Commander, Brig Gift Makhubele, confirmed that no arrests have been made thus far after a vehicle had been set alight in Bendor earlier today.

Members of the Moletjie and Seshego taxi associations were involved and investigations are still at an early stage,” he said.

Johan Retters, Bendor and Sterpark Safety Forum Chairperson, said they were also on the scene.

“We did not gather a lot of information from the taxi drivers and no one is sure what happened,” he added.

Review received imagery of the Seshego Circle Centre, where dozens of taxis can be seen parked at the centre. We contacted the Seshego Taxi Association Spokesperson, Mushita Lekganyane, regarding information doing the rounds that no taxis were available since late afternoon.

Presently no taxis are available from the Seshego and Polokwane Taxi Association to the extensions and from the Mall of the North. This is due to the infighting by members of the Moletjie, Mankweng and Seshego associations because of the loading of commuters at the mall he said.

Lekganyane could not confirm whether or not taxis from their association will be available tomorrow.
