Dunoon protests suspended 'for a few days' following community meeting

A Dunoon community leader has described how residents of that community have been unfairly caught in the middle of a dispute between the City of Cape Town and taxi bosses.

Protest action in Dunoon has adversely affected residents with schools being shut down and many people left stranded and unable to get to work.
