Buses set alight in Nyanga
Golden Arrow says at least 11 of its buses have been set slight as protests in the area continues.
CAPE TOWN - The South African National Taxi Council (Santaco) says it can't confirm if any of its drivers were involved in the torching of at least 11 buses this morning in Nyanga.
It says its drivers have several grievances that are falling on deaf ears even after complaining to the City of Cape Town.
Santaco's Sipho Masethi said, "First of all, fines have increased, This includes the warrant system which is being used. This is totally unacceptable."
A strong petrol and burnt metal smell fills the air at the Nyanga bus terminus.
The city's Theo Lane says firefighters were on the scene, but no fatalities were reported.
"Just before 6:30am, we responded to buses which were burning at the Nyanga bus terminus. No injuries have been reported."
All bus services from Nyanga have been cancelled and the company is only operating from Borchards Quarry.
Golden Arrow's Bronwyn Dyk says at least two of their drivers have been attacked.
"As far as I know two our drivers were removed from the scene and were beaten."
