The Police in Pienaarsrivier in the Waterberg District seek information that can lead to the arrest of suspects allegedly involved in the killing of two taxi operators whose bullet riddled bodies were found inside an idling sedan at the Pankop-Pienaarsrivier T-junction November 20 about 15h00.
It is believed the two victims attended a funeral at Phake village and as they were driving back and approaching the said T-junction, their vehicle was apparently shot at many times by unknown suspects. The victims’ vehicle went through the intersection and stopped in the nearby bushes.
It is not clear at this stage how many suspects were involved and whether or not they were on foot or driving a motor vehicle.
The deceased were reportedly the Chairman and Secretary of Simunye Taxi Association and were identified as Charles Sibanda (age not yet determined) and Julius Morifi aged 50.
The Provincial Commissioner of Police in Limpopo Lieutenant General Thembi Hadebe, has urged community members to assist the investigators in providing valuable information that can lead to the apprehension of the assailants.
