Associations raise their concerns during Sekhukhune Taxi Lekgotla


“The taxi industry is vital as more than 70 per cent of people in rural and semi-urban areas rely on public transport.”

MEC for transport and community safety Lerule Ramakhanya told hundreds of members of taxi associations at the fourth Taxi Lekgotla held at Thaba Moshate on Thursday.
According to Ramakhanya,the magotla seek to completely professionalise the taxi industry as an important contributor to the economy, enforce unity and leadership, empower role players and ensure compliance with regulations.
“I commend you for the contributions towards building a professional and economically viable taxi industry. 
“The taxi industry is beginning to find itself. Twenty six years into democracy, I am happy that the taxi industry is beginning to make an impact on economic growth. We should have a comprehensive and holistic approach towards the professionalisation of the taxi industry. Our people depend on us as a collective to improve the state of public transport in the province,” said Ramakhanya

About  30 taxi associations from Sekhukhune attended the event. 
Stakeholders deliberated the discussion documents and submitted views on how best the industry can operate.
