Calm restored to PMB CBD

Chaos had broken out earlier this morning when it is believed, that taxi-drivers who are fed-up with commuters being mugged, the theft from parked taxis and constant harassment of commuters from the whoonga addicts in the area, decided to rid the area of the addicts.

It is believed that the taxi-drivers had gone to nearby shops, purchased bushknives and sjamboks before having a brief meeting and then charged at the whoonga addicts. The taxi-drivers also burnt blankets and other possessions belonging to the addicts, who were attempting to take refuge in the old Matsheni spot.

The whoonga addicts retaliated by pelting objects at the policemen and taxi-drivers.  Police responded with teargas.

Public Order Policing were on the scene.
