Soweto taxi routes reopen

eNCA reports that Gauteng Transport MEC Jacob Mamabolo is expected to announce the reopening of Soweto taxi routes. Taxi ranks and routes were closed after violence flared up in Soweto earlier this year. Mamabolo has been in talks with squabbling taxi associations, Nancefield Dube West Taxi Association (Nanduwe) as well as the Witwatersrand Taxi Association (Wata).

It is expected that Mamabolo will on Tuesday communicate the way forward for the operation of the taxi ranks and routes. It’s alleged that at least five people have been murdered in the township, since the violence broke out in January.
