TAXIFY TAXI SET ALIGHT IN SUNNYSIDE PRETORIA

Two Taxify vehicles were set alight in Sunnyside, Pretoria, on Wednesday afternoon during ongoing taxi violence in the province, Gauteng police said.

The first vehicle was set alight when a driver of the ride-sharing service was called to pick up a passenger, police spokesperson Daniel Mavimbela said in a statement.

While waiting inside his vehicle, he was approached by a group of around eight men who threatened him with violence.

A “flammable substance” was used to set the vehicle alight and it burnt out completely. The driver escaped unharmed.
