Taxi industry suffers a heavy blow from lockdown

By Rapule Moiloa

I interacted with a taxi driver in Protea Glen, Soweto on how corona virus has affected him, the first thing he said was was to ask where this disease came from. He said coronavirus has proved to be a show stopper as he has been out of business since the announcement of the lockdown. He said business has gone down as people are now minimising movements and has since recorded losses. He highlighted how the taxi industry has suffered whilst highlighting that his brother have since lost his job because their company engaged in a massive job cut in face of the pandemic.
