tshwane thumb100 EWN reports that Tshwane commuters can expect some relief as taxis are expected to operate normally on Thursday morning.  

On Wednesday, operators blocked several roads causing massive delays while they proceeded to Tshwane House to submit a memorandum to Mayor Solly Msimanga.  Among the demands made was that traffic contravention tickets be scrapped.  The Democratic Taxi Workers Union of SA’s (Detwusa’s) Themba Maseko said:  “Our demands are the scrapping of the traffic fines because those fines block our PDPs and driver’s licenses and we can’t drive passengers without our PDPs.”  Detwusa has given the metro 14 days to respond to its issues or face yet another strike action.
