The South African Municipal
Workers Union has expressed its shock over the shooting incident on a Metrobus
west of Johannesburg this morning.
The shooting left the driver
of the bus in a critical condition. Police have now launched a manhunt for the
five suspects who held the driver and two passengers at gunpoint before robbing
them of their valuables.
Samwu Regional Secretary
Meisie Sekaledi says we urge Metrobus management to ensure the state of their
employees more especially those who perform their duties in the wee hours of
We further urge anyone who has
information to approach a nearest police station so that these criminals face
the full might of the law, this is what we need as unions that the law has to
take its own course because we cannot live in a country where people are not
safe, Sekaledi added.
