Ten taxi operators are believed to have been killed over the last six months in a flare up of violence between two rival taxi associations in Soweto.
Three people were arrested in connection with taxi violence in Orlando on Tuesday morning when drivers opened fire on each other.
It's understood the dispute emanates from a recent ruling by the provincial regulatory entity which found taxi association, the Witwatersrand African Taxi Owners Association, had irregularly used routes belonging to 'Nanduwe'.
The South Africa National Taxi Council's, Ralph Jones, has condemned the incident and says the matter is being addressed.
This whole thing is in the hands of the government. The MEC , Dr Ismael Vadi, mentioned that they were calling them. As we speak I am sure they are engaged in a meeting whereby they can resolve this.— Ralph Jones, Secretary General SANTACO
It is an old thing that has been happening and the law enforcement agencies, government, transport department are aware of this. More over there is a court interdict that came out, all they need to do is implement them.— Ralph Jones, Secretary General SANTACO
He said routes are regulated by the registrar's office and if one association has applied they will be given preference.
