He says for now the ranks and routes will remain closed.
The National Taxi Alliance says they’ve handed over a document to Vadi’s office in which the two associations agree and commit to stop the violence.
They’ve also agreed to set up a joint committee comprising officials from both associations to monitor operations on a daily basis.
Vadi says he has not been fully briefed on the contents of this document.
“Well we’ll have to see what the terms and conditions are of the so-called agreement. I have not had full sight of it. I have not had a full briefing from my officials. Remember, this is not a decision I take on my own… I have to confer with the City of Johannesburg because it is an interested party in the matter. I’ve got to confer with the law enforcement agencies to give me a situation report on what is their assessment on the ground. Are there tensions, are there any visible signs of conflict and violence. So it’s not a decision I take on my own there.”
