There seems to have been a lull in the taxi violence which claimed the lives of nine people in the Western Cape recently.
This is according to MEC for Transport in the Western Cape Donald Grant.
Grant says it has been rather peaceful following the talks held on Monday with Saps, law enforcement agencies, and the taxi industry to discuss the violent clashes over the weekend.
I can confirm that there were no taxi related killings yesterday...— Donald Grant, Minister of Transport and Public Works in WC
We are hoping that the talks, which took place among the taxi industries themselves, are starting to bear fruits ahead of the hearings which are underway in Athlone.— Donald Grant, Minister of Transport and Public Works in WC
According to Grant, all nine associations in Delft will be given an opportunity to submit relevant documentation in terms of section 91.
He says it will take a couple of days for the hearings to be completed as well as the information to be assessed.
