Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula: Government trying to resolve the taxi industry dispute

Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula has spoken out against what he describes as the lawlessness of the taxi industry. His comments come after the South African National Taxi Council’s (Santaco) decision to allow full passenger loads. Mbalula said the government is in communication with the council but there’s no more money to give.

The minister said the government is not fighting with the taxi industry and understands the industry has suffered ill effects from the national lockdown instituted to curb the spread of COVID-19.


Meanwhile, Mosebenzi Zwane, Transport Portfolio Committee Chairperson, said the government will not be bullied into giving more money to the taxi industry.

Zwane said the drivers are facing great difficulties, but the government doesn’t have any more money.  Coronavirus Hotline Number: 0800 029 999 from 8 am to 4 pm, Monday to Friday
