E-hailing taxis (Uber, Taxify) are under attack in the Western Cape.
Western Cape Metered Taxi vice chairperson David Drummond says the issue is not the area in which the e-hailing services operate but the drivers and the clients.
Speaking to John Maytham, Drummond says more training is needed for the operators.

The situation is out of control and has been for the past two years. There are a lot of unreported cases out there.— David Drummond, Vice chairman - Western Cape Metered Taxi
Drummond says they have pushed for training for a couple of years but this has not materialised.
