Congress of Democratic Taxi Associations (Codeta) affiliated taxis will not be operating until further notice.
Codeta spokesperson, Andile Khanyi said that this action follows the tensions that have arisen recently.
It is believed that conflict between Codeta and rival taxi association, the Cape Amalgamated Taxi Association (Cata) led to the killing of seven taxi operators in separate shooting incidents throughout Cape Town on Wednesday.
The incidents occurred in Ravensmead, Du Noon, Philippi East and Bellville.
Western Cape Transport Minister, Daylin Mitchell said the shootings bring the total number of taxi related murders in the province to 71 since the start of the year, with attempted murders and injuries over the same period at 33 .
