MINISTER GRANT AND MAYOR NAIK EXPRESS CONDOLENCES OVER TAXI RELATED KILLING IN GEORGE

JOINT STATEMENT BY DONALD GRANT AND MELVIN NAIK

MINISTER OF TRANSPORT AND PUBLIC WORKS AND EXECUTIVE MAYOR OF GEORGE

“The Minster for Public Transport and Public Works of the Western Cape Government, Mr Donald Grant, and the Executive Mayor of  George, Alderman Melvin Naik, today expressed their sincere condolences about the untimely death of Mr Wesley Sikhumbuzu Mini, Chairperson of Uncedo. ‘We are all shocked to hear of the tragic and premature death of Mr Mini. This is not the first time that the taxi industry in George has been marred by brutal acts of violence that have resulted in the loss of life. On the 25th May 2014, GO GEORGE chief negotiator Mr Tom Queba was also tragically shot and killed. Mr Queba's killer was eventually brought to justice, and sentenced to 20 years in prison for his crime in November 2015.

We hope that the SAPS will be just as vigilant with bringing those responsible for Mr Mini’s killing to book as they have been in the past. These criminal acts of violence cannot be tolerated, and those carrying out such acts must be brought to justice.

The memory of Mr Mini's leadership will continue to be a source of inspiration and encouragement to the community of Thembalethu and George as a whole.”
