The minister touched on many aspects affecting the industry, and ways in which it could be improved for the benefit of the country’s economy and its commuters.

“The taxi industry must demonstrate what the democratic dispensation has done for the black industry and for black people, and the poorest of the poor, the commuters and all of that. Government can’t turn a blind eye from the industry and look away with all its problems,” Mbalula said.
