The south Africa government through its tourism minister Tokozile Xasa said that the property destruction and the general mood of uncertainty surrounding the clashes could push tourist to travel to other countries instead of South Africa.

Africa news agency quotes Xasa as saying the rival drivers who are competing for business could eventually lose customers who are worried about their safety.

uber-taxi-fireUber said last week that South Africa must do more to prevent violence after several vehicles were set on fire, where the authorities were forced to use rubber bullets to calm the situation.
