CAPE TOWN - Golden Arrow has confirmed at least two of its busses were targeted following yet another illegal taxi strike in parts of Cape Town.

One bus was stoned in Delft where scores of commuters were left stranded on Monday morning.

Another bus was also attacked in Nyanga.

Golden Arrow's Bronwen Dyke says, "Golden Arrow is extremely concerned by these incidents of vandalism and violence. We simply trying to render our services to the people of the community across the metro because they need to get to work, school and we really put our faith in the police to apprehend those responsible."

Nearly two weeks ago, several Golden Arrow buses were stoned and set alight while two MyCiTi buses were targeted during a violent taxi strike in Nyanga and Mfuleni.

A 39-year-old taxi driver was shot dead during the mayhem.

Taxi association confirmed that the protest was sparked by sharp traffic fines given to their members and warned that this could destroy the industry.
