The Western Cape Transport MEC, Daylin Mitchell has warned that if the tax-violence continues here in the Mother City, he would be left with no choice but to close down certain taxi-routes and ranks.

Mitchell says the on-going violence threatens the safety of both commuters and legally-operating taxi drivers.

He says taxi-violence has, since the beginning of the year, claimed the lives of 76 people here in the province.

This week alone, three more people were killed in shootings in Mew Way, Khayelitsha and Delft.
