“Those working in the taxi industry are once more warned to refrain from these irresponsible acts.  You cannot resolve your conflicts by committing a crime because there is no justifiable reason to attack each other and also damage the properties in the name of business. People who are still perpetrating this type of acts are going to be dealt with mercilessly and without compromise, concluded Lt Genl Ledwaba.
