Escalating, Taxi Drivers Are Now Fighting Against Each Other, Taxis Burnt Down

Please don't forget to like, comment and follow me for more daily news!

We have been witnessing very unfortunate events unfolding in Eastern Cape this week and it seems like things are escalating.

There were reports that Somalians were burning down taxis in Eastern Cape and they were also spotted carrying big guns in the streets.

The Somalians were also seen being in an altercation with the authorities as they were very angry.

The reports indicated that the altercation started when a taxi driver bumped one of the Somalians around Gqeberha.

The minister of police, Bheki Cele have condemned the situation in Gqeberha and asked for peace around the area.

After witnessing what was happening in Gqeberha, news surfaced today that taxis are now being burnt down in Johannesburg.

It seems like this has nothing to do with what was happening in Eastern Cape but rather the forever occurring violence in the taxi industry.

It seems like taxi owners and drivers are in altercation once again in Johannesburg.

It seems like violence is daily bread in South Africa as we always wake up with such news every day in the country.


There has been an ongoing disorder in the taxi industry and their problems need to be fixed by the upper bodies and structures.

It seems like taxi associations are not winning with the fights that are taking place in the taxi industry and hence more input is required from the government.

President Cyril Ramaphosa and Minister Fikile Mbalula have to come up with a working strategy that will fix the problems and the violence taking place in the taxi industry.
