The current tensions in the taxi industry negate the country's vision to create a viable and professional sector lacking in violence and disorganisation.

The current tensions in the taxi industry negate the country's vision to create a viable and professional sector lacking in violence and disorganisation.

It is disturbing that taxi owners throughout the country live in fear after daily attacks have left scores dead.

This week three taxi bosses and a driver were gunned down in Jane Furse, Limpopo, Germiston and Johannesburg.

More than 20 people have been killed this year over routes in Johannesburg.

Horrifying, though, are claims of a hit-list of people to be killed before Christmas.

This is shocking.

The police must move swiftly to avert a bloodbath.

And disgruntled taxi operators must use existing resolution structures.
