PROVINCIAL MEC for transport, community safety and liaison Willies Mchunu has again warned Mandeni-Sundumbili taxi operators on the North Coast against breaking the law.
He said any operator found breaking the law could be fined or suspended.
Mchunu, pictured, yesterday held a report-back meeting with the operators after tensions in the area that resulted into two security companies enlisted by different factions of the association exchanging gunfire earlier this year.
The shootout resulted in three damaged taxis. Police recovered 400 cartridges on the scene, 23 suspects were arrested and 23 assault rifles and two pistols were confiscated. No one was injured.
Mchunu told the gathering that the office of the registrar would investigate who holds the rights to operate in the area, including whether the association had any legal standing.
Associations involved include Tugela, Mandeni and Sundumbilli which have a membership of 233.
"I as MEC have a duty to ensure that no constitutional law is broken by association members."
