Another Uber Attack: Uber Car Set Alight With Driver Still Inside

June 14, 2017

There has been yet another attack on an Uber driver in Johannesburg. Uber itself has now called for the South African government to step in and intervene.

Uber has confirmed the attack on one of their drivers.

This time a driver had his car set alight while he was still inside. The Uber driver is currently in a critical condition in hospital.

Allenberg said, “This incident is deeply upsetting to all of us at Uber. This driver-partner is part of our community. We are in contact with his family and we have visited him at the hospital. Our thoughts continue to be with him while we do all we can to help with the ongoing investigation to bring his attackers to justice.”

Allenberg added, “While we are doing all we can to assist in preventing incidents and provide assistance to driver-partners and riders, we cannot do this alone – we need more support from the authorities and policymakers to help prevent and condemn these terrible crimes. We are now appealing for additional support from the Government and the South African police to assist in both the prevention of these crimes, as well as to ensure the perpetrators are brought to justice.”
