Man expresses gratitude for SA's taxi drivers: "Let us salute them"
In another taxi-related post, Briefly News reported that taxi drivers are the heart and soul of Mzansi. Tsotetsi Thiza realised this and decided to share a post online dedicated to the hardworking taxi drivers who've assisted South Africans in many ways.
Thiza spoke about the taxi drivers that have given free lifts, the drivers that have offered rides to those who are lost, the drivers that have wished them luck before their interviews and the drivers who ensure that people working late get home safely.
Thiza's post hit a lot of SAns hard as they took the time out to share stories and thank local taxi drivers for being who they are.
