Provincial police said the matter was related to the taxi industry.
Cape Talk has reported on the same day the Congress of Democratic Taxi Associations (Codeta) distributed flyers to staff transporters, sedan taxi drivers and e-hailing (Uber, Bolt, etc.) ordering them to “stop taking their customers” or face fines.
The fliers had stated that staff transport drivers are permitted to operate from 9:00 pm to 4:00 am while no e-hailing services may ever operate in “Codeta areas”.
Codeta has since retracted the threatening notice following a meeting with Western Cape Transport MEC Bonginkosi Madikizela.
Madikizela met with representatives from Codeta and Santaco Western Cape to address the threats and the taxi violence.
Provincial transport authorities are expected to meet with Saps, City and provincial law enforcement and the National Prosecuting Authority to come up with a lasting solution to the ongoing taxi violence.
