Violence is condemned everywhere around the world. This is because where there is violence, there is pain and loss of lives as blood is spilled in most cases.

One of the industries that was previously respected but is currently experiencing unbearable acts of violence is the taxi industry. This industry has become the most dangerous industry to do business in. Taxi drivers and owners are killed almost every day around the country as some of its ignorant members turn the industry into "a killer's industry".

Violence or killing each other will never be a solution to any problem. Have the killers ever thought of the trauma and suffering family members of the deceased go through?

Yes, to those involved, they would be killing an opponent, but that would be someone else's uncle, brother or father. Therefore, it is not only about getting rid of your opponent.

To you heartless killers out there, does it make you happy to see children suffering after losing their fathers? Does it makes you happy to destroy the reputation of this industry? Shame on all of you!

Members of this industry should come to their right senses and end the violence. Enough is enough!
