Last week, the Tshwane township of Mamelodi was wracked by violence when a new city bus line was attacked by mobs wielding mobby stuff, like bricks and guns. At issue is a hate quadrangle between Autopax, the company with an interim tender for the location’s lucrative bus routes; Putco, who recently lost their partial subsidy for those same routes; the taxi associations, who claim they are being run off the road; and the government, who actually own Autopax. The loser in all of this? The regular Mamelodi commuter, of course. By RICHARD POPLAK.
