“City of Windhoek deals with public transport issues, not taxi fares” Amukugo

The City of Windhoek has distanced itself from the taxi fare regulation, following a three day strike by some taxi drivers in Windhoek this week. Speaking at a media briefing, the City of Windhoek Manager for Corporate Communications, Joshua Amukugo said that the City of Windhoek has a reponsibility to ensure that proper public transport infrastructure is set to cater for the city’s residents. Amukugo continued to say that although the concerns are that the infrastructure is inadequate and as a result road users, particulary taxi drivers are forced to violate traffic rules, law enforcement cannot allow such behaviour. He went on to say that, law enforcement will continue to enforce all enacted laws in the city for the benefit of all road users albeit pedestrians, private vehicle owners or taxi drivers.
