September 17, 2019 4:45 pm
The Ministry of Moms, an informal group of parents is calling on the Fiji Taxi Association to look into claims that some taxi drivers are selling drugs.
MOMs Founder Ellana Kalounisiga says there have been numerous allegations that some taxi drivers may be involved in the illegal trade which is a cause for concern.
“We’re really looking forward to the TAXI association doing a national investigation because this is a community effort in the fight against methamphetamines.”
President for the Fiji Taxi Association, Raben Singh says it’s an area that was discussed at their recent annual general meeting.
“It has been done, but none of the drivers has been caught carrying drugs. If the passenger is carrying drugs, that’s none of the problem with the driver because the driver don’t know what they’re carrying in their bag. Driver supposed to only do the job. They cannot check the bag of the passengers.”
Meanwhile, the MOMs will hold their second public meeting which will be held at the Fiji Museum on the 28th of September.
