Tshwane building set alight as taxi drivers protest – Video

Tshwane building set alight

Police fired rubber bullets and teargas to disperse protesters on Lilian Ngoyi Street on Wednesday to make way for fire engines. Protesters are believed to have set fire to a building which is owned by a foreign national. They claim drugs are being sold from that building.

Taxi drivers have been protesting following the killing of one of their own.

“The problem in Tshwane is about drugs. The whole city is surrounded by Nigerians selling drugs. Yesterday one of our taxi drivers who wakes up each morning to work for his kids and family was killed,” one driver told eNCA. Gauteng Police Commissioner Elias Mawela said it wasn’t immediately clear how the fire started. Once everything is declared to be safe, we are going to bring in our forensic investigators so that they can come and establish what caused the fire.
