City Of Cape Town Slams 'deplorable' Actions Of Taxi Drivers After Cop's Gun Was Stolen, Commuters Attacked
The City of Cape Town has condemned the "violent reaction to the rule of law" by taxi drivers after they protested on Tuesday afternoon, and a police officer was assaulted and robbed of his firearm.
As commuters were making their way home from the station deck taxi rank, taxi drivers protested, blocking roads and allegedly stirring up violence over warrants.
News24 previously reported that commuters had been threatened and violently forced out of taxis.
The City's mayoral committee member for safety and security, JP Smith, called the behaviour "deplorable".
"The behaviour of taxi drivers in the CBD last night is deplorable. Their actions seem to be part of a new trend of violent reaction to the rule of law," said Smith.
