Chaos on Cape Town streets

There was mayhem on Cape Town streets today as taxi drivers blocked major highways and parts of the CBD.

Western Cape taxi bosses say they’re prepared to sue the provincial Government for loss of income, over the wrongful impounding of their minibuses.

Taxi operators claim their vehicles have been confiscated unfairly. And then they’re slapped with exorbitant fines to recover them.

Several commuters were injured in this morning’s chaos, as buses, delivery vehicles and staff transport were targeted and torched.
