The Cape Amalgamated Taxi Association, CATA says it’s members are struggling to deal with the deaths of the organisation’s drivers. They were gunned down yesterday afternoon in a meeting at the Nyanga taxi rank. CATA’s regional spokesperson, Andile Siyamo, says two other members of the organisation were wounded and are in a stable condition in a nearby hospital. Another driver who is a member of CATA was shot and killed a week ago, also in Nyanga. Siyamo says the motive for the attacks are not clear. He says it’s the first time that their members have been attacked in their boardroom. “We have been so many years in the taxi industry and we are using the boardroom. But we are lucky that we were not dead all of us. Our three members have passed away, but I don’t know where this came from. We don’t have enemies in our operation. Our members when they recover we need to sit down and look where this is coming from.” Western Cape Transport Minister, Donald Grant, says the fatal shooting is a result of the uncertainty around leadership in the province. In August, CATA declared a dispute with the South African National Taxi Council over the leadership in the province. The association’s taxi drivers then embarked on a strike which left thousands of commuters stranded. Grant has condemned the shooting. ” The police are helping. They have increased visibility around the Nyanga area and specifically around those ranks. This is to do with the uncertainty around the leadership battle. We have now finished eight of the regional leadership contests in the Western Cape. On the 17th of November, hopefully, we will have the final outcome of the provincial elections.”
