We meet a taxi boss who serves a R50-bllion industry that more than two-thirds of commuters rely on daily. Shrouded in controversy, violence and conflict, South Africa’s taxi industry is pivotal to the economy. But this taxi boss lives in fear. His family needs bodyguards in their unnatural, sheltered world because of the ever-present target on their backs. In this world, innocence has long gone, and everyone is guilty of something in a bid to “protect” their routes, their lifeblood. South Africans often bear the brunt of the taxi wars. Now, Carte Blanche gets into the back seat to see life through a taxi boss’ eyes, and it isn’t long before bullets start to fly... With all the risks and mitigation measures put in place, the question remains: is it worth it?
