“It’s the lack of morals nowadays because if that’s my occupation, it comes with responsibilities….I have people’s children….when it comes to taxi queens….I need to be safe and I need to treat them with respect……that’s what I feel is lacking”

“At the moment its grown folks telling children that ‘taxi queenirism’ is wrong, what about telling [the adult]…that’s unacceptable”
