Police say they are on high alert in Vereeniging following a taxi strike in the area.
Calm has been restored after taxi drivers barricaded all entrances on Wednesday during a protest.
It’s believed drivers were outraged by poor infrastructure and delays in upgrades to the taxi rank.
Gauteng police spokesperson captain Mavela Masondo said: “We have intensified our police visibility and we will remain in the area until we are sure that everything is back to normal.”
