TAXI INDUSTRY SAGA

MEDIA STATEMENT ISSUED BY MALIZOLE DIKO
UDM NATIONAL SPOKESPERSON

The UDM urges Government to suspend the introduction of the proposed new buses and re-open negotiations with the affected taxi organisations.

President Thabo Mbekiís insensitivity towards taxi organisationsí concerns is totality unacceptable and shows that he is out of touch with the realities on the ground.

This Botharian style of leadership will not help the looming crisis. Cabinet should seek understanding and not confrontation.
