Durban – The KwaZulu-Natal Transport Department is considering legal action in a bid to resolve the longstanding conflict between the KwaNdengezi and Zwelibomvu taxi associations.

Community Safety and Liaison MEC Willies Mchunu said he had directed the department’s legal unit to explore legal avenues available to government to enforce stability in the taxi industry in KwaNdengezi and Zwelibomvu, west of Durban.
