Cape Town - Despite the dismissal letters MyCiTi bus drivers received from their vehicle-operating companies on Wednesday, they say they are not ‘turning back’.

Another, MyCiTi vehicle-operating company, Table Bay Rapid Transit (TBRT) has fired some of their striking bus drivers who are participating in the second week of an unprotected strike.

One of the fired drivers, who was among the five that was arrested on Tuesday, Luzuko Memani said, they are not turning back.

“Turning back won’t help us, if some of us turn back they will go back to the same companies and meet the same people that are ill-treating us,” said Memani.

Memani, said, he was sent letters by his company via WhatsApp.

He said he received three letters, one was sent on October 17.

Memani said the third letter which he received Wednesday, served as a dismissal notice.

TBRT manager, Oswald Maloy said the company has followed all due processes in terms of communicating with their employees involved.
