‘Don’t step on our feet’, taxi drivers

Published

Equipped with signboards, the General Taxi Owner’s Union has protested against the government’s decision to allow only two tour operators to transport international travelers from the airport to their hotels.

Some 72 taximen said they need clarifications as to why they are not being able to work during the first phase of the reopening of the borders – as from July 15.

They claimed to have been “hit hard” when Mauritius closed its borders. “They say they have even been vaccinated, but are in the dark as to when they can work again,” Le Mauricien newspaper reported.

“Don’t step on our feet. Let us live. The job is going to a cartel and cronies,” Asraf Ali Ramdin, president of the General Taxi Owner’s Union was quoted as alleging.
