Hout Bay taxi violence

Transport MEC Donald Grant says the two associations are fighting over routes between Hout Bay and Cape Town.

The Western Cape Transport MEC Donald Grant says Monday’s deadly shooting in Hout Bay is as a result of contestation between two taxi associations - Cape Amalgamated Taxi Associations (Cata) and Congress of Democratic Taxi Associations (Codeta).

Four men were shot dead and two passengers were wounded near the Hout Bay Police Station on Monday.

The two associations are fighting over the route from Hout Bay to Cape Town.

Grant says the illegally occupied space next to the Hout Bay police station, where the shooting occurred, has been closed.

I am told by my officials that the root cause of all these is organised crime.

Donald Grant, Transport MEC - Western Cape Government

If we want this to stop we must have consequences for those people who are breaking the law with impunity in terms of these taxi ranks.

Donald Grant, Transport MEC - Western Cape Government

Grant says he is hoping that there will be effective action to end this behaviour by the taxi associations.

He says a meeting between Saps, the NPA and the Western Cape government was held yesterday hopes to find an amicable solution to this.
