    After decades of having a taxi system in place for decent publictransport in South Africa, the situation of route ownership andtaxi violence can still not be resolved. Bullets don’t discriminate,cutting down rivals and innocents alike. Recently the taxi industryclaimed three lives with their mafia-like tactics, and all-outgang warfare. Two minibus taxi drivers were shot dead in Pretoriaand a child lost his mother on her way to work in Midrand.We often forget about the ones that get left behind. The ones whomight have been dependent on those who are no longer withthem. A father. A husband. A mother. A wife.In 2003, Thabo Jijana’s father was gunned down in a scrap betweenrival taxi associations who had been forced to operatefrom a single rank. A decade later, Thabo faces up to South Africa’smost violent industry to try to figure out how and why hisfather was murdered.In this searing first-person investigation, Thabo puts a face behinda recurrent tragedy that plagues South African workingclasscommunities. He begins by trying to reconstruct the nightthe murder took place, but what he uncovers about the ongoingstrife that has plagued government’s consistent attempts to formalisethis multi-million rand industry comes with more baggagethan he expected.
