Tsomo taxi rank is unusable since completion in 2019.
Supplied by Nombulelo Damba-Hendrik

Thalami Civils, the company at the centre of a dodgy R15 million stadium built in the Enoch Mgijima Municipality, was also involved in the construction of an unusable taxi rank in Tsomo, which cost the local council R4m.  

The Tsomo taxi rank was built and completed by the East London-based company two years ago, after they were contracted by the Intsika Yethu Municipality.
