In this latest incident, a battle of words broke out between a Uber driver and a ‘red’  (legal) taxi driver, identified by his last name, Dijeres, when he tried to prevent the Uber driver from picking up a client getting off a Tracopa bus.

The exchange escalated from an arguement shouting, but no physical violence occurred.

The Uber driver, who preferred to remain anonymous, said he put out the call on the social media Whatsapp and in minutes some 40 fellow Uber drivers came to his aid, to deal with any possible confrontation with the taxi drivers.
