Taxi drivers block road into Atteridgeville
Drivers are preventing other taxis from moving freely through a taxi rank near the Kalafong Hospital.
JOHANNESBURG - Tshwane Metro Police (TMPD) say taxi drivers in Atteridgeville have blocked roads leading into and out of the township, east of Pretoria due to what is believed to be an industry related feud.
It's believed a group of taxi owners and drivers are preventing other taxis from moving freely through a taxi rank near the Kalafong Hospital.
Other motorists are also being affected by the blockade.
Officials say at this stage no violent incidents have been reported.
TMPD spokesperson Isaac Mahamba says police are at the scene monitoring the situation.
"Taxi drivers at this stage are barricading the entrance of Kalafong, as you enter Atteridgeville. We will be trying to determine what the issues are and who we can resolve them. We are still on scene."
