MEC Transport Grant and Public Works said the committee – consisting of transport department officials, traffic traffic, law enforcement, NPA and police representatives – had condemned the violence "in the strongest terms" and would t Help the police in their investigations.
Four people were shot dead in and around the local sports field on Monday morning when dozens of shots were fired. Two other people were injured, West Cape Police confirmed.
“It is believed that the violence is linked to ongoing disputes between two societies associated with the two Cape Cape bodies, CATA (Cape Amalgam Taxi Association) and CODETA (Cape Institute for the Democratic Taxi Association). The societies are CATA: Hout Bay – Wynberg and the Central Unity Taxi Association, ”said Grant.
“Illegal operations in this area date back a few years, resulting in intermittent conflict between the two societies. The fierce tensions and past violence, caused by disputes over unlawful routes and operations, led to the Provincial Transport Registrar to issue suspension notices to the affected societies last week, for cutting the r t Code of Conduct for taxi associations and minibus operators. ”

A member of the security and safety mayor committee, JP Smith, said the local taxi rank had also been closed and would be physically blocked so that it could not be used.
He confirmed that both associations had been suspended after shooting last week, where a man was shot dead on Thursday.
However, a number of taxis had continued to operate and were built into four operations carried out by City Cape Town's traffic services.
“Last week, we conquered and we will stretch [it] now to try to stop them from acting. ”
Grant said that the deferred societies are being heard, in accordance with the law, before the registrar makes a decision to de-register an association on the grounds of inappropriate behavior.
Meanwhile, a specialist detective team was investigating the shooting and a number of operations were underway to eliminate the violence, police said earlier on Monday.
