Abashayeli bamatekisi eGoli bavale imigwaqo ngoMsombuluko njengoba beya embhikishweni yokufuna imali ethe xaxa kuhulumeni.

Amasosha namaphoyisa abonakale kwezinye izinxenye zasePitoli bephoqa  abashayeli bamatekisi ukuvula umgwaqo ngemuva kokuthi bewuvale ngamatekisi.

UEmmanuel Maleka, okhulumela i-Top Six Taxi Industry kuzwelonke utshele i-Scrolla.Africa ukuthi amatekisi azobuyela emgwaqeni kusasa. Kodwa uMaleka uxwayise ukuthi uma isivumelwano singabanga bikho phakathi kwemboni yamatekisi nohulumeni “sizoqala ukuvala izwe iviki lonke bese siguqisa lonke izwe ngamadolo”.

UMaleka uthe inhlangano ithole izingcingo eziphuma kubashayeli kwezinye izinxenye zezwe befuna ukujoyina ngokuvala izwe. “Bekumele siqale kwenyindawo, kanti leyondawo iseGoli. Sizolihambela lonke izwe uma uhulumeni engasithatheli ekhanda,” uyasho.
