Lets all face it, the “amaphela” or cockroach taxi’s have got a pretty bad reputation in Hout Bay. From speeding down the road to stopping with out caution, they have angered many in the community.
Yet they are a vital mode of transport for people with out a cars. In Episode 5 of “What I don’t know about IY” I took a ride with Aviwe, an amaphela driver, and Owen through the streets of IY to see just how bad these guys drive behind the wheel.
To be honest it did not turn out the way I expected it to!
