“The gentlemen acted contrary to the [rules and regulations of e-hailing companies in Polokwane, including Bolt, t-Drive and Uber]. They are just criminals, who should be left to law enforcement agencies,” he said.

“Any member of the public using or affiliated to any e-hailing service would know that part of their duty is to authenticate the driver who responds to their service request.”

Police are yet to comment on the incident.
