ancEWN reports that the Gauteng African National Congress (ANC) has called on both Uber and meter taxi drivers to put the safety of commuters first.  

The provincial party said Thursday night’s violent clashes between the two groups were not good for the province as access to safe and reliable public transport systems were crucial for the economy.  There were violent clashes in Sandton on Thursday evening, which resulted in the torching of an Uber and a meter taxi, as well as another car.  The provincial party's Motalatale Modiba condemned the violence, saying:  “We cannot afford to have conflicts in the public transport sector.  We condemn acts of violence and intimidation.”
