The disruptive and violent taxi strike that gripped Cape Town on Monday morning has been called off. This follows a meeting between representatives from the taxi industry and the provincial Transport Department.
Taxi owners were aggrieved by South Africa National Taxi Council (Santaco) leadership in the province as well as the impounding of taxis.
EWN Reporter Kevin Brandt who has been covering the strike tells CapeTalk's John Maytham that taxis have resumed their services.
Brandt says while the strike has been called off, a mediator needs to be appointed within the next two weeks to resolve their issues raised at the meeting earlier.
