On Sunday afternoon, a taxi driver was shot and killed on the N3 as he was taking passengers from Pinetown to Durban.
The abrupt shooting of their driver by an unidentified passerby stunned the taxi passengers.
According to Thesouthafrican.com, South African Police Service (SAPS) spokesperson in KwaZulu-Natal Colonel Robert Netshiunda, the taxi driver, believed to be in his 30s, was allegedly shot multiple times by an unknown passenger after an argument.
Netshiunda said further reports indicated that the taxi was still in motion when the shooting occurred. No other injuries were reported,” he said.
The South African National Taxi Council in KZN claims that the presence of passengers makes the attack all the more distressing.
Police have initiated a murder investigation after it was reported that the shooter fled the area on foot in the direction of Mayville.
