JOHANNESBURG - Alexandra, Randburg, Midrand and Sandton Taxi Association (ARMSTA) says police are failing to enforce a court order instructing a rival association to stop intimidating its drivers working along the Mall of Africa route.

The association delivered a memorandum of grievances to the Community Safety Department yesterday.

It has called on the MEC to intervene following recent clashes between rival associations for routes to the new Midrand shopping centre.

The association says its members are being attacked by rival taxi drivers despite a court order.

Three people were wounded in taxi violence shortly after the opening of the mall earlier this month.

ARMSTA chairperson Sam Budzwa says, "We are also looking at others way to get the MEC of Transport to enforce the court interdict.
