A group of shareholders of George Link, the company that operates the Go George bus service in the Southern Cape town, is accusing its directors of maladministration, fraud and corruption. They are also calling on the new national Minister of
Transport, Fikile Mbalula, to intervene in the proposed roll-out of phase 4 of Go George to Thembalethu, and other areas such as Parkdene. This follows a visit a couple of months ago by former Transport Minister Blade Nzimande, who with provincial Minister Donald Grant and the municipality, agreed that more time is needed for the issues between the taxi industry and Go George to be sorted out. Speaking on behalf of the shareholders, is Chairperson of the George
Community Forum, Xolisane Booi: "The last time mr blade was here, the last minister, he said that before the implementation of anything, all the sectors need to come to a round table so we can resolve the outstanding issues. we are not saying the bus must not run, we need the busses, but it must be done in a very proper way.: George Link Director and Operations Manager, John Heathcote, says the majority of shareholders are satisfied about how the company is being run: "We are not hiding anything, we ask them to not spread rumours and rather come to us, and ask for proof, so that we can go through the whole process together."
