Two brothers employed for Injabuliso Bus Service were shot and killed eight (8) kilometres apart in Ndwedwe, KZN this afternoon (Monday).
Members of Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA) were dispatched at approximately 18:19 Ndwedwe, KZN after receiving reports that a bus driver had been shot and killed. The caller was unaware of a second shooting that occurred eight (8) kilometres away. RUSA Members traveled nearly one hour mostly on unpaved roads when they were flagged down by bystanders standing next to a bus.
It was established that the driver of the bus was shot and killed while a 35 year old female was shot on her right leg. She was a passenger in the bus. Medics treated her injury before she was transported privately to a medical facility. The driver sustained multiple gunshot wounds to his head & body. He died at the scene.
RUSA Medics proceeded to the second scene which was the initial call and found a bus lying on its side. Medics entered the bus through the front windscreen and assessed the driver who had been shot in the head. He showed no signs of life and was declared deceased.
According to the conductor both men were brothers. He went on to explain that a man boarded the bus and without warning fired multiple shots at the driver. He then exited the vehicle which continued to roll before it climbed an embankment and rolled.
Several passengers were injured when the vehicle overturned. They were transported privately to a medical facility prior to the arrival of First Responders. The suspects are believed to have fled in a silver Toyota Etios. The registration plates were removed.
The owner of the same bus service was also gunned down in Tongaat – Kwazulu Natal last month (October 2021)
