Many foreigners and their shops are currently being attacked after a taxi driver was shot dead in the Pretoria CBD following an altercation between taxi drivers and supposed drug dealers on Tuesday afternoon.
Taxi drivers in the area had confronted a group of alleged drug dealers in a bid to clean the city’s streets. Tshwane Metro Police Department (TMPD) spokesperson, Isaac Mahamba, confirmed the incident.
Mahamba said: “The taxi operators took the law into their own hands. They apparently approached the drug addicts in the CBD. Then there was a commotion and shots were fired, and one taxi operator was shot and killed.”
