What was supposed to be a day filled with hope for a new job, turned into a harrowing experience for a Cape Town woman who said a Bolt driver swore at her, refused to let her out of the vehicle and tried to pull her out of a restaurant she had fled into amid a payment dispute.

The woman, who spoke to News24 on condition of anonymity, said she had a job interview lined up and used the Bolt app to hail a taxi to Church Street in the CBD from her home in Belgravia on 21 January 2022.
