South Africa’s top taxi association has begun a strike to protest against government’s relief package.

Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula disclosed that the taxi industry rejected the government’s relief offer of over 1.1bn South African rands which was intended to help the industry recover from the effects of the lockdown.

The association stated that the amount was not enough, but the minister says the government will not increase it.

Taxis in Gauteng province, home of the commercial hub Johannesburg, went on strike on Monday morning which inconvenienced commuters.
