Mhlaba Mufakazi lives in KwaMashu and works in Durban.

Yesterday he and hundreds of workers from his area had to pay double the daily bus fare to be transported by taxi.

"The bus coupon was so much cheaper and now we bought it in advance. We have lost the money, there are no refunds. The taxi fare is double.

"How do they expect us to live? We cannot send out children to school like this."

"Taxi fares from KwaMashu to Durban central route is R120 a week and bus fares a week is R60. Taxi fares from Inanda to Overport is R160 a week and bus fares a week is R82." - Canaan Mdletshe
