easterncape thumb100 TMG Digital/Daily Dispatch report that, following Friday’s chaotic march to Bhisho, Eastern Cape Premier Phumulo Masualle and taxi bosses have agreed on a plan to address taxi industry concerns.  

At a meeting between the premier‚ the finance MEC and the SA National Taxi Council (Santaco)‚ the taxi industry bosses raised serious concerns which directly impacted on the day-to-day operations of the industry.  These included delays in issuing valid operating taxi permits and the transfer of a taxi industry transformation grant by the provincial department of transport.  The parties agreed on the establishment of a working team, composed of two representatives from the taxi industry and government officials, to urgently seek solutions on the two matters.  The team will‚ within a period not exceeding seven days‚ report back to the premier‚ who will then convene another meeting with Santaco for feedback.
