Taxi violence is like a cancer that does not want to go away, it keeps on feeding and lurching on the body. Hundreds of communities die annually due to taxi violence and fighting of different taxi associations all over the country.
They fight for taxi routes that tend to pay more money.
Taxi bosses have also been fighting with uber, bolt and taxify operators, they have accuse them of stealing their customers. Many have died horrible deaths in the hands of these barbaric acts and today yet another e-hauling service driver is fighting for his life Fter being heavily beaten by taxi drivers.
Mulalo Mutondwa, a Bolt driver was today beaten up by taxi owners after dropping off a passenger in Voslorus, Ramakonopi section. He is in a bad condition and currently in hospital. One has since been arrested.
Many of these acts of violence most go unpunished because it has been alleged that police officers are scared of these taxi operators.
