CAPE TOWN - Uber and Taxify drivers are protesting in the Cape Town city centre.

To make their point, drivers made their way down the Main Road from the Cape Town Stadium in Green Point to the CBD, causing a traffic snarl up.

This Uber driver claims those working for the two e-hailing services are being exploited by their bosses.

“The condition is time-based tariffs… any type or form of charging is strictly prohibited in terms of this permit, but Uber refused to increase their prices for the past five years.”
