Uber, which operates in a sector which thrives off self-employed people working simultaneously for different employers without fixed contracts, said its drivers already earned on average more than the living wage of 7.50 pounds ($9.68) an hour but it would go further.
Uber said at the time that initial investigations had found "one of our driver-partners was in Pretoria when he was attacked by a small group of unknown individuals".

Uber SA spokesperson Samantha Allenberg said the company needs police assistance to ensure the safety of users.
