SANTACO KZN's spokesperson, Sifiso Shangase says the arrest is "good news" for the taxi industry 

"This, on its own, gives us hope as operators because we had lost in our governement. We had thought that they had just left us to kill each other in the minibus taxi industry." 

"This gives us hope for 2020 that if others are caught the killings of taxi drivers in the province is definitely going to be reduced."
