[LISTEN] Shocked caller describes taxi driver forcing passenger out of an Uber

Caller Tshego says as she exited the Gautrain station she witnessed a metered taxi driver pulling a client out of an Uber.

She says she was exiting the Gautrain Park Station and while waiting for her shuttle to work, she witnessed the scene between metred taxi drivers and the Uber drivers.

The metred taxi driver literally took a guy out of the car, who had paid for his Uber transport - literally pushed him out of the car, took him out, demanded that the driver drive off, and proceeded to call their own taxi to come and collect this guy. It was ridiculous.

Caller, Tshego

Tshego says she began videoing this to send to her husband.

And a bunch of ten men descended on me, grabbing my bag, grabbing my hands, threatening me.

Caller, Tshego

I had to take refuge back in the Gautrain Station where they could not get hold of me and I haven't been able to get to work since.

Caller, Tshego
