Some unknown gunmen have reportedly murdered a 58-year-old driver.
The driver was reportedly shot dead and this was after these gunmen punctured his car tyres with spikes. As we speak, the North West Police are on the hunt for these men.
The deceased is identified as Sello Kgasi and per reports, upon realizing his tyres have been punctured, he got out of the car to change his tyre only to be shot dead by men two who allegedly were speaking in Shona.
After murdering him, they also took away his gun. There were two female passengers in his car and these two passengers were also robbed by these unknown gunmen.
Captain Sam Tselanyane of the North West police confirmed the incident stating that it happened on Friday.
“The vehicle got a puncture after it drove over spikes that were spread on the road near Solar Panels camp.
Kgasi allegedly stopped the vehicle to fix the puncture, but was ambushed and shot by two suspects who were armed with firearms.
As a result, Kgasi was fatally wounded and the suspects robbed him of his personal pistol and other belongings. Furthermore, the suspects also robbed the two passengers of an undisclosed amount of cash and their cellular phones. According to the reports, the suspects who are still at large, were communicating in Shona.”
The Provincial Commissioner Lieutenant General Sello Kwena has also reacted to this and in his reaction, he said;
“The public, especially motorists are warned to be very vigilant when approaching that area at night as it is becoming a crime hotspot. We will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that alleged perpetrators are brought to book.”
