The South African National Taxi Council (Santaco) has called off the taxi strike which was slated for Wednesday 22 February Cape Town.

This comes after a meeting between the Santaco and the Western Cape Premier, Alan Winde, the Cape Town Mayor, Geordin Hill-Lewis, and the Mobility MEC, Ricardo Mackenzie on Tuesday.

A statement confirmed that Santaco’s executive committee elected to call off the provincial stay away due to progress made in the meeting.

“Yes, I can confirm the is an official Santaco letter out, Santaco will operate and that message has been out to the public at large.”

Santaco wanted its drivers to park their minibus taxis on Wednesday.

The action would be in protest against what the taxi council deemed the impounding of its vehicles for traffic violations unfair while drivers waited for operating permits.
