Hout Bay shooting: Motorists advised to avoid traffic circle near cop station
Hout Bay ward councillor Rob Quintas say the situation in Hout Bay remains calm following the shooting by two rival taxi associations in the area.
The roads that were previously closed due to the ongoing violence have since been reopened and police are monitoring the area.
However, motorists are advised to use alternative routes and avoid the traffic circle next to the Hout Bay police station.
It looks like we might have potentially averted instability in the area. As it stands the situation is naturally tense and way forward is already in progress in terms of meetings being held with security services.Rob Quintas, Ward councillor - Hout Bay
According to Quintas, three people have been killed on Monday and a few were injured.
The ongoing violence seen in Hout Bay within the taxi industry is 100% criminality and it remains the jurisdiction of the South African police service to investigate and make arrests.Rob Quintas, Ward councillor - Hout Bay
Quintas says there will be a meeting tomorrow between the MEC of Transport, Donald Grant, taxi associations and relevant stakeholders to try and find solutions to the current situation in Hout Bay.
Hopefully, we can find more longterm and sustainable solutions to what is happening right now in Hout Bay.Rob Quintas, Ward councillor - Hout Bay
