Uber and Taxify operators on Tuesday vowed to shut down the app-based e-hailing operations in Johannesburg.
Early on Tuesday morning drivers were blocking the pick-ups of their colleagues who have not joined the protest.
They’re protesting against the increasing number of drivers on the service, which they say has affected their profits.
Drivers made their way to the company's head office to hand over a memorandum.
Drivers went offline last month due to similar concerns.
Speaking to Ray White on The Midday Report, Uber and Taxify drivers spokesperson Vhathuka Mbelengwa says since then the situation has got worse.
Fuel has gone up and income has gone low.— Vhathuka Mbelengwa, Uber and Taxify drivers spokesperson
He adds that they submitted many memorandums to Uber bosses, to no avail.
We have tried having engagements, but we are rejected.— Vhathuka Mbelengwa, Uber and Taxify drivers spokesperson
Mbelengwa says the roundtable that Uber has set up is a way for the company to divide drivers.
And making sure that we are misrepresented. They are not interested in getting the real story or our real policy positions or our real outlooks.— Vhathuka Mbelengwa, Uber and Taxify drivers spokesperson
