The South African National Taxi Council (Santaco) have made an announcement that the KwaZulu Natal taxi drivers will go on strike
They have made this announcement in a taxi protest for Wednesday and Thursday. The strike is against the Department of Transport Road Traffic Inspectorate and Shanela Environmental Management impounding taxis for not having permits.
The taxi associations said that no blockages were planned. The Durban Metro have reported that taxis are traveling in contraflow in busy city central roads like West and Warwick Street.
Reports also indicated that the R66 towards Umlazi is completely blocked off by taxis.
No taxis in whole of Kzn this sucks
