One of the five minibus taxis was completely burnt out during the protest.

Angry community members of Ga-Mphahlele near Lebowakgomo damaged five minibus taxis in retaliation after operators prevented a commuter from hiking, forcing him to board a minibus taxi.

”Police were notified and the situation was brought back to normal. Cases of malicious damage to property and assault were opened. Provincial Commissioner Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba has condemned these acts of mob attacks and vigilantism,” said spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe.
