Woman shot in Cape taxi war

Cape Town - A 34-year-old woman was shot in her car in Khayelitsha on Monday night.

The shooting took place at just after 6pm in Site C of the township. Police spokesman Colonel Tembinkosi Kinana said the woman was wounded and taken to hospital.

Residents suspect the attack was linked to taxi violence in the township as the victim was reportedly married to someone in the taxi industry.

But police told the Cape Argus: “The circumstances are being investigated and the motive is unknown.”

Last week, a man was shot and killed at the taxi rank in Nyanga.

Meanwhile, there was another shooting in Delft last night. Gershwin Flandorp, 23, was shot and killed at Boyce Court in the southern part of the sprawling neighbourhood.

Police had not identified the gunman at the time of publication.
