Eastern Cape taxi operators on Wednesday embarked on a manhunt for controversial former Nelson Mandela Bay ANC councillor and staunch Jacob Zuma ally, Andile Lungisa, after he was fingered as an instigator in mobilising violent unrest in the province in support of the incarcerated former president.

Operators went in search for the former ANC councillor, even going to the party's offices in a bid to track him down.

As taxi operators targeted Lungisa, news spread that the ANC had suspended him for 18 months in connection with his council brawl conviction dating back to October 2016.
