newsEWN reports that taxi associations Wata (Witwatersrand African Taxi Owners Association) and Nanduwe (Nancefield Dube West Taxi Association) were given back access to all routes in Soweto from Tuesday morning.  

Transport MEC Ismail Vadi had suspended their routes and closed their taxi ranks last month due to violence in which some 20 taxi drivers were killed.  Vadi announced on Monday that the associations’ bosses had agreed to the conditions imposed by his department.  Wata’s Mandlenkosi Maphalala said they were happy that they would operate on the routes again because they had lost a lot of money last month.
