Rustenburg - Two police vehicles were damaged after taxi drivers threw stones during a protest in Rustenburg, police said.
The drivers were angry after taxi bosses blocked them from donating money to the family of a colleague who died, a North West police spokeswoman said.
"They were throwing stones (at) other cars and they also damaged two SAPS (South African Police Service) vehicles. A case of public violence was opened," she said.
One taxi driver told the African News Agency that the group was angry after owners confiscated a book in which the contributions were recorded.
"The drivers went on a strike stating that the money was from their pockets. A group of drivers went to the office where owners were holding a meeting (and) threw stones vandalising the office and police vehicles," said the driver who declined to be identified by name as he was not authorised to speak to the media.
