The taxi operators blocked off the roads in Ruimsig, the western Johannesburg. The local metro police have been deployed to the scene to monitor the situation.
“There is a large gathering of taxis along Hendrik Potgieter Road and motorists have been advised to drive with caution. More officers have been deployed to that area to control the situation,” JMPD’s Wayne Minnaar stated.
The police officers are expected to clarify the reason for the demonstration.
