Johannesburg - Two minibus taxi drivers were shot dead in suspected taxi violence in Ekurhuleni, Gauteng police said on Wednesday.
One of the drivers was shot while driving on Van Dyk Road in Boksburg towards Vosloorus on Tuesday, Captain Augustinah Selepe said.
Selepe said shots were fired at the 50-year-old taxi driver from a white car that was following the taxi, killing him.
The car then turned around and followed another taxi going in the opposite direction on the same road.
A 55-year-old driver was also shot dead before the car sped off, said Selepe.
No arrests were made and police were investigating. - Sapa
