Mpumalanga police have launched a manhunt after a woman was shot and killed in an apparent hit while driving in Pienaar, outside Nelspruit on Tuesday.

Police spokesperson Colonel Donald Mdhluli said that it was unclear, at this stage, where the woman was going when unknown gunmen in a white Mercedes Benz opened fire on her Jeep.

"It is said that two, armed suspects came out from the said vehicle and fatally shot her. It is further alleged that the suspects helped themselves with an undisclosed amount of cash," Mdhluli said.
