'Only WC taxi bosses can end the violence'
According to MEC Robin Carlisle the issue of ongoing taxi violence can only be ended by taxi bosses.
CAPE TOWN - The Western Cape Transport Department says only taxi bosses can end the violence gripping the industry.
Some taxi groupings are to take part in a series of talks this week, which are aimed at bringing stability back to the industry in some parts of the Western Cape.
At least six people have been killed in recent shootings said to be related to a taxi turf war.
MEC Robin Carlisle says, "It's appropriate that they should meet because only they can stop the violence. The violence has got nothing to do with the province or the city, it has to do with competition between taxi owners."
The Delft area in particular has seen the worst of the violence with several shooting incidents.
Residents recently took part in a march to express their frustration with the ongoing violence in their community.
