At the end of the day, we must try something to ensure the safety of the community and us, said Vhatuka Mbelengwa, national spokesperson for the South African Ehailing Association.
The discussions between the ehailing association and the Soweto Taxi Services (STS) were facilitated by the City of Joburg.
The ban was introduced as a form of a ceasefire agreement between the taxi operators and ridehailing drivers.
Whether the solution is the best now is uncertain, but it is a solution nonetheless.
The ban will be in place until a permanent solution is found.
For the taxi drivers, chairperson Myekeleni Madlala also welcomed the agreement.
This is an agreement and not a final one.
