In a recent outbreak of violence in South Africa, 11 minibus taxi drivers were shot dead and four injured when unknown gunmen opened fire on their vehicle in KwaZulu Natal province on Sunday.This has been confirmed by National commissioner of police Khehla Sitole, who said the men were travelling back to Johannesburg from a colleague’s funeral on Saturday night when they met the devastating ambush, Edujandon.com writes.
“Preliminary reports indicate that that the 11 were among 17 people coming from a funeral… Four victims were critically injured and taken to hospital while two survived unscathed,” he said.
Sitole added that the police have launched a manhunt to find those responsible for the dastardly act.
“We will wait for the investigation to advance before speculating on a motive,” said Sitole.
Private minibusses provide essential transport for millions of South Africans, but violence is common between rival taxi groups as profitable routes are hotly contested.
