The DA in the Western Cape is pursuing means to bring those involved in the recent bus attacks to book.
This comes after four Golden Arrow buses, and one City of Cape Town vehicle, was torched in Nyanga on Thursday.
The incident is said to have followed after a traffic operation, in which 19 amaphela taxis and two minibus taxis were impounded.
According to the DA’s spokesperson on Transport, Ricardo Mackenzie, the poor conviction rate in these matters reinforces ongoing and similar criminal activity.
Mackenzie says he’s invited the National Prosecuting Authority to brief the Standing Committee on Transport, regarding its strategies to convict the perpetrators involved in these types of crimes.
“The Golden Arrow Busses and other vehicles this morning in Nyanga, which has caused close to R10 million worth of damages. Transport remains the lifeblood of our economic activity and cannot be left to crumble. We will monitor these developments and do everything in our power to ensure that residents can have access to the safe transport options they deserve.”
There have been no arrests for the incident as yet.
