EFF members in Cape Town protested against the impoundment of taxis in the city. However, the protest did not gain as much momentum as expected. Police and law enforcement officials were on high alert and maintained a strong presence in Athlone. A small group of protesters gathered at Vangate Mall, while over 20 taxi operators blockaded Jakes Gerwel Drive to stop traffic. The EFF and taxi operators are demanding the release of impounded taxis. The City of Cape Town set up a joint command centre to handle any disruptions caused by the protest. The SA National Taxi Council (Santaco) distanced itself from the march, stating that taxi operators would participate under the organizing political parties but it would not affect their daily operations. Overall, the protest did not have a significant impact, and there were no reported incidents or disruptions.
