The lawlessness by the disgruntled demonstrators got out of hand.
Taxi drivers took the law into their own hands and barricaded all entrances in the Vereeniging CBD.
Taxi drivers in Vereeniging were arrested on Wednesday after they barricaded all entrances during a protest in the CBD.
Police fired rubber bullets and stun grenades at the protestors.
Police spokesperson Fikile Funda said the taxi drivers communicated to them that they were waiting for a delegation from the legislature with whom they have issues.
Funda said that no damage to property and casualties had been reported.
It is quite alarming the rate at whcih the taxi guys take to violence at the slightest provocation.
