Santaco suspends Western Cape taxi strike after ‘painstaking deliberations

The South African National Taxi Council in the Western Cape has suspended its eight-day strike following deliberations with the City of Cape Town and the provincial government on Thursday afternoon. According to News24, Santaco said it would resume its operations on Friday after the parties involved in the “painstaking deliberations” resolved to release minibus taxis that were “wrongly impounded” in the next two weeks. The taxi association said this move was significant in restoring trust and its operations.
