JOHANNESBURG - Uber has confirmed one of its drivers is the suspect in the attack on a 71-year-old man at the OR Tambo International Airport.
The elderly man is in a critical condition in a hospital after suffering serious head injuries during the altercation on Sunday, which broke out allegedly over a parking space.
“This violent and aggressive behaviour is completely unacceptable. Upon learning of this we immediately removed the driver's access to the app,” Uber spokesperson Samantha Allenberg said.
