Fanyana Sibanyoni blames government for giving business to people outside the municipal area

Mr Fanyana Sibanyoni (chairman of Vukta) wants the government to come up with permanent solutions to the scholar transport problems in the area.

The Economic Freedom Fighters have made peace and apologised to Vukanini Taxi Association (Vukta) for criticising them for the scholar transport problems in the area.

The party barricaded roads and burnt tyres at Gate 7 in eMbalenhle and blamed Vukta for the problems.

They accused the association of disturbing the operation of scholar transport buses in the area.

Their apology came after Vukta had a meeting with them and other stakeholders to clarify the matter.

Mr Fanyana Sibanyoni, chairman of Vukta, said the information given to the public about the association were lies.

He said the association cares about the community it is operating in, hence they constantly give donations, especially to schools and the needy.

Mr Sibanyoni said the reason why they stopped the scholar transport buses, is because the government has given business to people outside the municipal area and that Vukta is fighting for local economic development.

School governing bodies from the affected schools welcomed Vukta’s input and said they were given the wrong information.

They said they are facing many problems with the current scholar transport buses, which include overloading, buses that are not in a good condition and buses that often do not pic up the learners.
