Abanikazi bamatekisi eMnambithi, eKZN bathathe isinqumo sokulihoxisa icala lokufuna izigidi eziyi-R15 abalibhekise kuMnyango wezokuThutha eKZN.

Abe-Klipriver Taxi Owners Association bebesezinhlelweni zokumangalela umnyango ngokuvalwa komzila wabo ngowezi-2018, bebala ukulahleka kwemali engenayo unyaka wonke.

Kodwa manje sebephelelwe yimali yokukhokhela abammeli babo, ngakho icala selilahliwe.

Ngowezi-2018, owayenguNgqongqoshe wezokuThutha ngaleso sikhathi, uMxolisi Kaunda, wafaka imingcele emigwaqeni eyayinezinkinga ngemuva kokushona kwabantu abangaphezu kwama-60 ezigamekweni ezingezona ezezimoto kusukela ngowezi-2014.

Ngowezi-2015, umndeni wabathathu base-Gauteng wadutshulwa wabulawa kulokho amaphoyisa athi kwakuyicala inkabi la eyadubula khona abantu okungesibo ifuna umnikazi wetekisi.

Kwesinye isigameko esibuhlungu, kubulawe othisha abahlanu ngesikhathi behamba ngetekisi beya esikoleni ngowezi-2017.

Lokhu kuvinjelwa kwaqedwa ngowezi-2019 yiNkantolo eNkulu yaseMgungundlovu ngemuva kokuthi abe-Klipriver befake icala eliphikisana nokuvinjelwa kukaNgqongqoshe.

UMnyango Wezokuthutha wayalelwa ukuthi ukhokhe izindleko zomthetho ezibalelwa kwizi-R500,000.

UMkhulu Masondo, ongusoseshini, uthe ukuvalwa komzila wase-Gauteng, e-Newcastle, naseThekwini kuholele ekutheni abaningi balahlekelwe ngamatekisi abo nezindlu ngoba bengenayo imali.

Babe sebemangalela umnyango befuna izigidi eziyi-R15.

“Besifuna umnyango ukhokhele ukulahlekelwa kwethu kwemali kodwa asisakwazi ukuqhubeka nokumangalela ngoba asisenayo imali yokukhokhela abammeli. Sesilahlekelwe yimali eningi kakhulu,” kusho uMasondo.

Impi yemizila yaqala njengengxabano yomndeni eminyakeni eyishumi eyedlule e-Gauteng kodwa yagcina ifake abantu abaningi phakathi kweSizwe Taxi Association ne-Klipriver Taxi Association.
