  1. #1

    Thumbs down BRT bus attacked

    Lets solve our problem with violence! . Christ i hate this country. Luckily no one was killed

    (sorry if this a repost)

    "Johannesburg - A policeman and bus passenger were wounded when the occupants of a minibus taxi opened fire on a BRT bus in Soweto on Tuesday evening, Johannesburg police said.

    Shots were fired from a Toyota Quantum minibus that had been following the bus as it was driving past the Nancefield Hostel around 19:00, Inspector Kay Makhubela said.

    A policeman was hit in the leg and an unidentified passenger also wounded. Both were taken to hospital.

    After the shooting the driver pressed on and eventually stopped next to the Regina Mundi Church.

    No arrests had been made. It was not clear how many people were on the bus at the time.

    The Bus Rapid Transit system was unveiled with great fanfare on Sunday. Taxi operators have expressed opposition to the project, fearing it would destroy their livelihoods."

    I hope they die a slow and agonising death one day. These people are thousands of levels lower than animals.

    Is lekkor, nee is reg. This reminds me of the metro rail incident a few years back. The train was late so they burnt it to the ground.

    Thumbs down Homegrown terrorism must be wiped out NOW !

    That's it !

    The Taxi industry just shot itself in the foot with this dispicable act of economic terrorism.

    We're going to see the reaction of a very angry government - can't wait to see the repercussions of this one.

    Guavemints response will be very interesting. It will be their first repost. The natural choice would be to use force. However it would be like wrestling with a pig in mud, both get dirty and the pig likes it.

    Hmm, I wonder what they will do. Most likely carry on as usual, just arrest the perpetrator and 'investigate' the taxi companies books.

    Divide and conquer.

    Ah yes, Ted Vos.

    News like this really makes me lose faith in this country... But guess what? It's still not surprising. The only thing that is surprising is that it hasn't turned into a bloodbath yet.

    One BRT, one bullet.

    Hehe, World Cup 2010, those BRT rides for the foreigners could get interesting - im thinking along the line's of a roller coaster ride.

    In the end, the GoverMUNT's will hand over BRT to the taxi industry, what other option do they have: "Eish comerade's let's sit around the table and discuss this". - animals are not into discusssion's.
