Bus driver shot through the mouth then robbed


A Golden Arrow bus driver suffered a gunshot wound to his mouth while dropping off passengers at Jaftha Masemola Street in Khayelitsha on Friday.

Three suspects reportedly approached the bus and one of them fired a shot through the windscreen, hitting the driver.

The other two suspects are said to have boarded the bus and robbed the driver of his cellphone and an undisclosed amount of cash.

The criminals also robbed passengers before fleeing the scene.

Police spokesperson FC van Wyk said the driver managed to drive the bus from the scene to the police station. He was then transported to a nearby hospital for treatment and the police are investigating cases of attempted murder and armed robbery.

SAPS spokesperson, Bronwen Dyke-Beyer, said that due to Covid-19 protocols, they were not allowed to visit the driver but have been calling the hospital to check on him. He is apparently doing well.
