Government Spokesperson, Chief Thesele Maseribane has stressed the importance of Communication to resolving the disputes.
This, he said on the first day of the countrywide stay away of public transport operators, thereby appealing to taxi operators to engage in talks with the government in order to find a sustainable solution to the matter.
According to Maseribane, a Ministerial Sub Committee has been formed to lead the talks, noting that it is made of Ministers of Law and Justice, Transport, Police and Public Safety as well as Deputy Minister of Water.
He assured members of the public as well as taxi operators that the government has decided to halt operations of the Magistrate Mobile Court until a solution is found.
Meanwhile, commuters who rely on public transport were we left stranded due to the first day of a seven days stay away of the taxi operators which has been planned to last until October 28.
They were forced to walk long distances on foot to reach their respective places of work as there was no public transport.
The stay away of the taxi operators is likely to have a direct negative impact on the already ailing economy which has been adversely affected by the rampant novel COVID-19.
