santacoIOL News reports that the South African National Taxi Council (Santaco) has announced a taxi protest for Wednesday and Thursday in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN).  

KZN taxi associations, including short and long distance associations, have come to a complete standstill.  The strike was called in protest against the Department of Transport Road Traffic Inspectorate and Shanela Environmental Management impounding taxis for not having permits.  Durban Metro has reported taxis travelling in contraflow in busy city central roads such as West and Warwick Street and there are also reports of blockages outside the Durban Station in Umgeni Road as well as Moor Road.  Reports also indicate that the R66 towards Umlazi is completely blocked off by taxis.
