Mbalula slams Santaco's decision to load taxis at 100% full capacity

The taxi association made the announcement during a virtual briefing on Sunday.

Transport minister Fikile Mbalula has slammed the decision by South African National Taxi Council (Santaco) to load taxis at a 100% full capacity.

RELATED: 'Taxis will operate at 100% capacity while complying to COVID-19 regulations'

Santaco on Sunday warned the government that if one vehicle is impounded for loading at 100% capacity on Monday morning, it would bring the country to a standstill.

In a statement, the minister said it was rather unfortunate and regrettable that the taxi industry leadership has elected to violate the law and forcefully load taxis at 100% capacity and undertake inter-provincial operations without the requisite permits, rather than await a decision on the matters they have tabled.
