Petrus Mabunda, Member of The Mayoral Committee (MMC) for Transport in Ekhurhuleni has denied that taxi drivers are opposed to the Harambe Bus Rapid Transport System roll out.
This comes after commuters in Ekurhuleni were left stranded on Tuesday after the South African National Taxi Council (Santaco) drivers went on a strike demanding the resignation of Mayor Mzwandile Masina and handed over a memorandum to the City Council Chambers.
However, the MMC disputed the fact that taxi drivers were against the BRT System roll out which will continue.
They are not upset by the BRT system, they are upset by the processes that need to be taken with the system which had a delay administratively. But in terms of the system they continuously pledged to be in support of the system.— Petrus Mabunda, MMC for Transport
