Cape Town - Three men suspected of murdering 52-year-old Kraaifontein taxi owner Allie Ndyosi have been caught on camera.

Police have released clips of video footage taken at Ndyosi’s home, and are calling on the public to assist in finding the men.

The men entered Ndyosi’s home in Bloekombos, Kraaifontein at the end of last month where they shot and killed him in front of his family, police spokeswoman Phindiswa Gcume said.

The men then fled, not knowing they had been filmed by CCTV cameras Ndyosi has had installed at the entrance of his house.

How the suspects fled was still being investigated, Gcume said and added that they did not take anything.

“Around 8.30pm the three men armed with firearms entered Ndyosi’s house in Zandile Street. Ndyosi had CCTV cameras installed around his house. That’s how we were able to identify the suspects,” Gcume said.

Although the motive for Ndyosi’s death is still unknown, Gcume said the area was notorious for its violence along the major taxi routes.

The video shows the three men entering Ndyosi’s home. Ndyosi’s car is seen parked in the background.

Kraaifontein Community Policing Forum chairman Fila Mawethu said Ndyosi was well-known in the area and owned about 12 taxis. Mawethu said he suspected the killing was taxi-related.

“The taxi violence that happens in Delft has slowly started moving to the Kraaifontein area. People in the taxi industry have started resorting to violence to make sure that food gets put on the table,” Mawethu said.

Ndyosi was buried in the Eastern Cape last week, he said.
