Durban – An estimated 300 metered taxi drivers and owners marched to the Durban City Hall on Thursday to complain about Uber.

KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) Metered Taxi Alliance spokesperson Sizwe Mvubu told News24 they gathered at the Durban Christian Centre in Berea and marched to the city hall where they handed their memorandum to a city official.

Mvubu alleges metered taxi drivers are losing clients to Uber due to what he believes to be unfair competition. He added that another issue affecting metered taxi drivers in KZN was that Uber drivers, in his view, did not have as much costs as they do.
