A MINIBUS taxi driver was shot dead in Wartburg in the midlands yesterday afternoon in an attack apparently arising from a dispute between rival taxi operators.

Police said Skhulu Thusi (55) was driving along R613 and stopped after two passengers asked to get out.

One of the them shot him in the neck.

Both passengers jumped out of the taxi and got into a dark blue Toyota Corolla and got away.

No one has been arrested.

Anyone with information is asked to call Warrant Officer Sipho Gcabashe at 033 506 1043 or 082 459 9891.
