NTAANA reports that taxi commuters in Tshwane have been warned to find alternative means of transportation on Wednesday, with the National Taxi Alliance (NTA) expected to forge ahead with its planned protest against government.  

The NTA will march to the Ministry of Transport and the Presidency to present memoranda of grievances relating to issues affecting the taxi industry.  The grievances raised by the taxi industry include provisions of the National Land Transport Act, matters related to operations, the Integrated Public Transport Network or the BRT system, compensation for an operator surrendering an operating license, the Taxi Recapitalisation Programme, and the public transport subsidy.  Meanwhile, Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi has urged parents to take precautions and put their children’s safety first on Wednesday.  The national strike will be happening during the examination period and the department has asked all school principals to give inner grades pupils who might not make it to school on Wednesday another opportunity to write any assessment that might be missed.
