Gauteng Transport MEC, Jacob Mamabolo says he will meet with representatives of two feuding Johannesburg taxi associations on Sunday.

This was after one person was injured and four taxis set alight in the Johannesburg CBD on Saturday morning.

Six other taxis were damaged at the intersection of Von Weillig and Commissioner streets.

Emergency teams and police are on high alert in the area.

Mamabolo has condemned the violence saying it will not be tolerated.

“We are monitoring the situation. We are working hard with law enforcement to make sure that we bring immediate stability to the area. We have already contacted the provincial structures of SANTACO (South African National Taxi Council ) and GNTA (Gauteng National Taxi Alliance) in the province,” says Mamabolo.
