Change the world


A Port Elizabeth taxi association operating in the Missionvale area yesterday disrupted the University’s student shuttle service and blockaded the entrance to NMMU’s Missionvale Campus, making it impossible for vehicles to access the campus.

The University took immediate action to engage the taxi association on the reasons behind the blockade. An agreement was reached in that meeting to unblock the entrance, while engagements between the taxi association and the University continued.

The University has requested that the taxi association formally table their requests for discussion at a follow-up meeting scheduled for Friday, 24 February 2017. The University sought and received assurance that there would be no further disruptions to student transport while the parties are engaging.

The University will prepare a more detailed and comprehensive statement following tomorrow’s meeting.
