CAPE TOWN – The City of Cape Town has called on police to urgently find and arrest those responsible for the death of a Golden Arrow bus driver.
The man was shot and killed while behind the wheel in Nyanga on Saturday.
This caused the bus to crash into two houses as it veered off the road.
The City of Cape Town says it is “shocked” and “sickened” by the attack on the bus driver.
The metro together with Golden Arrow bus services have expressed their condolences to the affected family.
Mayco member Brett Herron says transport infrastructure has become an easy target for attackers.
He has called on police to ensure the perpetrators face prosecution, adding they cannot allow criminals to undermine and sabotage the public transport system.
Vandalism against Metrorail has also been highlighted as a concern, with Herron saying this pushes more commuters onto the roads.
