TAXI DRIVERS BLOCK ROADS IN THE VAAL!

Twelve minibus taxi associations have blockaded all routes leading in and out of the Vaal Triangle.Taxis operators affiliated to the South African National Taxi Council (Santaco) began their planned seven-day strike on Tuesday night.They are demanding answers from the provincial government over the completion of a taxi rank and mushrooming potholes on all their routes.This, as government departments and political parties are expected to hold several Human Rights Day commemoration events in the area.Santaco spokesperson in Sedibeng, Mbuyiseni Mahlangu, said the events which were expected to take place in Sharpeville on Thursday would only go ahead if Gauteng Premier David Makhura attended to their grievances.President Cyril Ramaphosa is expected to be the main speaker at the annual commemoration of the killing of 69 people on March 21, 1960, when 180 people were also injured.Police spokesperson Captain Fikile Funda said they were shocked when they woke up to find that various objects, including trucks, were used to blockade all entrances and exits around the Vaal.#Vaal on total shutdown today by different taxi associations.
