Santaco: Members must respect deal
The Western Cape has seen a spike in taxi related violence in recent months.
CAPE TOWN - The South African National Taxi Council (Santaco) has called on all its members to respect a peace agreement signed between rival groups.
It comes after a taxi driver was shot and killed and a passenger wounded in Bellville this week.
This is the latest incident in an ongoing taxi war that has claimed around seven lives in recent weeks.
Santaco's Vernon Billet says talks aimed at defusing tensions are ongoing.
"Talks are ongoing, the operations are now peaceful. We hope the members will abide by the resolution taken."
Last month, Delft residents took part in a march to express their frustration with the ongoing violence in their community.
Areas most affected by the violence were Elsies River, Parow and Mitchells Plain.
