CT's deadly taxi war rages on
Two shootings related to taxi violence were reported just hours apart.
CAPE TOWN - Western Cape police are investigating the circumstances surrounding two shooting incidents related to taxi violence in the province.
In the first incident, a shootout erupted between taxi drivers in Parow on Tuesday evening.
No injuries were reported.
The police's Thembinkosi Kinana said, "The motive for the incident is currently unknown. Police are investigating and no arrests have been made at this stage."
In the second incident on Tuesday, a taxi driver was gunned down in Elsies River.
Four men have since been arrested in connection with the shooting.
Earlier this week a Nyanga taxi driver was forced off Govan Mbeki Road and shot dead.
Two people were apprehended in connection with the shooting and taken into custody on Monday.
It remains unclear whether the shooting of the Nyanga man is related to a rivalry over routes in the area.
At the same time, there have been several incidents of taxi violence in the Delft area in recent weeks.
In one incident, a man was killed in the crossfire between rival taxi associations while travelling between Khayelitsha and Delft.
