THE killing of Mthuthuzeli Molefe, a taxi operator from the Vaal, has once again delayed progress to harmonise relations in the transport industry.
Stakeholders in the National Joint Working Group (NJWG) on public transport were supposed to sign a memorandum of understanding today.
The signing would give impetus to the ongoing talks on transport issues, with special focus on the Rea Vaya Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system.
NJWG comprises the Department of Transport, the taxi industry and civil society organisations.
Chairperson of the civil society organisations Dumisani Mthalane said Molefe's murder has delayed progress in their efforts to find solution in the issues that arose strongly with the introduction of the BRT. "The executives of all stakeholders were supposed to sign a memorandum of understanding tomorrow (today). We were supposed to report back on our respective sub-committees on Friday."
l Molefe's memorial will be held at the McCallum Church in Evaton today. The service starts at 10am.
