Groblersdal, Limpopo -

A protester was shot dead on Friday in a service delivery protest in Tafelkop near Groblersdal, Limpopo police said.

Local residents barricaded roads, stopping workers and pupils from leaving the area, Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said.

“A taxi ferrying passengers was stopped by the protesters, who surrounded the vehicle. The driver panicked, pulled a gun and fired at the protesters, hitting one of them,” he said.

The driver drove off with the passengers still inside. The wounded protester was taken to hospital and died later.

Police were searching for the taxi driver.

“At the moment, the situation is still tense and police are maintaining their presence in the area.” - Sapa
