The Western Cape plans to establish a task team to investigate recent taxi violence in Cape Town.
Transport MEC, Donald Grant, will on Monday meet with senior police officials to discuss interventions.
This follows incidents of crime across parts of the city that have left several people dead.
Two taxi drivers were gunned down in Delft last week Friday and while another man was also shot dead at the Hanover Park taxi rank.
Government officials met with taxi associations operating in the Delft area calling for peaceful operations.
Grant says taxi drivers did not report for duty on Monday, despite additional police protection arranged in the area.
It's about contestation of routes, the protection of old established people in the area, and route invasions from an organisation.— Donald Grant, Western Cape Transport MEC
This morning, we are meeting with the taxi task team and senior police management around the issue.— Donald Grant, Western Cape Transport MEC
