“There have been reports that there will be more riots from the taxi industry in retaliation to the murder of a taxi driver that happened on Tuesday.”

“We had to withdraw all our Tshwane bus services as well as A re Yeng bus services. When the situation is calm will try to restore the buses and inform the commuters,” Senkubuge said.

Many bus commuters have been left stranded in Pretoria this morning. The city temporarily suspended its bus services for safety reasons after threats of protests.
