taxi violence in the City of Cape Town

SOUTH AFRICA, CAPE TOWN – It seems the Western Cape government is doing little to stem the tide of taxi violence in the City of Cape Town.

On Monday evening, three people were killed in Delft – one of them a taxi owner.

When police responded to reports of a shooting in Delft on Monday evening, they found three bodies lying in the road.

They believe this is the latest incident in 92 taxi-related murders recorded this year alone in the province.

The police’s Novela Potelwa said the police’s taxi task team was investigating this week’s incident.

“They are probing a shooting incident that left three men dead in delft believed to be linked to the conflict in the taxi industry.”

At the same time, police are still investigating the murder of five people at the Nyanga Terminus last month.

They were members of the taxi association Cata.
