The Western Cape MEC for Transport and Public Works, Donald Grant, and representatives of the SA National Taxi Organisation (Santaco), as well as a Taxi Task Team, met on Monday to thrash out a leadership bluster and by early afternoon said the strike was called off.
“At the center of the disagreement is a dispute over internal constitutional processes that must be followed in the election of a new leadership,”Grant said
The strike which has caused plenty of damages by leaving at least 52 people injured and two buses were exploded.
“One of the commuters was hit in the face by a flying rock and the pregnant commuter fell during the violent attack near the Kuyasa stop” said Herron
They agreed on negotiating how their new leadership would be elected and were encouraged to return to work and ensure they mellow in the streets during the evening commute.
