Taxi strike: Trouble brews at airport

There is still no clarity where the protests have shifted to, as some reports indicate taxi drivers have gathered at Emperors Palace.

It may seem the airport for now is blocked off.

* Meanwhile,  the Gauteng Education Department urges parents to keep their children at home today due to the taxi strike.

For the sake of the safety of the children the department believes that all precautionary measures should be taken to keep our children safe.

The Department has urged all schools to give learners that could not make it today a second opportunity to write exams.

“We understand that many schools are writing exams but assure parents that children who did not go to school today will be given a second opportunity,” the department said in a statement this morning.

The department has communicated to all school principals to give children that could not make it to school today another opportunity to write at a later stage.

In cases where children have made it to school safely, the schools are urged to make a determination whether to continue with the exams that were scheduled for today, subject to the condition that it is safe to do so.
