5 to appear for Gautrain bus shooting
Pretoria - Four men and a woman accused of wounding a Gautrain bus driver are expected to appear in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
The five, aged between 22 and 49, allegedly shot and wounded the man on Monday morning in Rooihuiskraal during a trial-run of bus routes in Centurion.
They face charges of malicious damage to property and attempted murder.
On Tuesday, Bombela Concession company spokesperson Kelebogile Machaka said the driver was recovering in a Centurion hospital after undergoing surgery.
"We feel that the Gautrain bus service has been under concerted criminal attack and, as a private sector entity, we can do no more without the strong and decisive intervention of the state," she said.
