CAPE TOWN - Police are monitoring a stretch of road between Mthatha and Libode following a deadly attack on a taxi driver in the Eastern Cape.

The 26-year-old driver was shot and killed and another person injured yesterday.

Police say the killing was as a result of ongoing violence between taxi operators in the area.

The police's Mzukisi Fatyela says, "There is a problem between the taxis in the Mthatha and Libode associations over the road between Mthatha and Libode."

Four men have also been arrested following the murder of another taxi driver a few weeks ago.
