Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane on Wednesday called on taxi operators who bought Toyota Quantum panel vans that were illegally converted into minibuses to approach her office.

“It has come to Adv Mkhwebane’s attention that unscrupulous businesses sell such vehicles to taxi operators in hard cash, as opposed to credit, to evade the stringent measures that are able to detect and thwart this fraudulent practice,” her office said in a statement.

She is finalising a report on the matter.

Her predecessor Thuli Madonsela started the investigation in 2012, following a complaint that the vehicles in question were modified by manufacturers, importers, and builders.

They were allegedly structurally unsound and unstable, did not meet government safety regulations, and had contributed to accidents.
