ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
The ongoing taxi wars must be stopped. Can anyone justify the killing of those taxi drivers in KwaZulu-Natal?
What saddens me most is that the drivers were coming from a funeral after burying one of their own when they were ambushed and killed. It pains my heart that after fighting so hard and so long to defeat apartheid, we’re still fighting among ourselves. What exactly is the problem? The taxi industry has too many problems.
It’s about time government regulates this industry because it can’t run it on its own. To survive in this dog- eat- dog industry it seems one must own a gun and be prepared to be violent. Going to a taxi rank is a risk. We never know if we’ll even manage to board a taxi or reach our destinations alive.
For how long must we continue to lose lives in barbaric, stupid and selfish ways? These senseless killings must end. The government must stop this rot. MCDIVETT KHUMBULANI TSHEHLA, EMAIL
