Mabhena, Mr TB to ask the Minister of Transport
Whether any taxi rank in the Republic has been fumigated, disinfected and deep cleaned in the past three months; if so (a) what number of taxi ranks,(b) at what total cost to his department and (c) how were the specified taxi ranks selected? NW 2115E
The Department did not procure any services for the disinfecting and cleaning of taxi ranks. This service has been decentralized and National Treasury has mandated Province and Local Authorities to utilise a percentage of allocated Grant Funding to procure COVID-19 related activities for transport industry. As such, the disinfecting and cleaning of taxi ranks is done at provincial and local level.
