As World Homeless Day was marked, the City of Cape Town declared it intends appealing a court ruling that it pay compensation to homeless people it removed from District 6.
Daily commuting in Cape Town has never been so dangerous. Eighty people have been killed this year, casualties in a turf war between taxi associations.
The taxi industry by far transports the biggest number of passengers on any given day, compared to both rail and bus. However, with taxi owners and drivers fighting over routes, the industry is marred by violence that in the conflict between two rival taxi associations in Cape Town, 13 people have been killed.
