JOHANNESBURG – Gauteng police say they are not ruling out the possibility that the latest killing of a taxi owner on the East Rand is linked to taxi violence.
It’s understood the man was collecting money from his drivers from the Ivory Park Taxi Association yesterday when he was fatally shot.
Eyewitnesses say two suspects opened fire before fleeing the scene.
The police’s Kay Makhubela said, “Nothing was taken from him. His wallet, his money and also his cellphone were found in his possession, as well as the money which he was collecting was found in the car he was sitting in.”
It’s the latest shooting believed to be linked to taxi violence in the province.
Two people were shot and killed earlier this week in Midrand over the Mall of Africa route.
