Mthatha police are looking for two unknown suspects that stabbed, shot and killed a 48-year-old Ncedo Taxi Association official at Ncedo offices in Eagle Street, Mthatha today at about 11:00.
It is alleged that the deceased was in the office together with other office staff, when two unknown men entered the office and went straight to the deceased and first attacked him with a knife. The one suspect also produced a firearm and fired several shots at the deceased without uttering a word. The two assailants fled the scene and five 9mm spent cartridges were collected from the scene. A case of murder has been opened for investigation. No arrests have been made. Although the deceased is involved in the taxi industry it is at this stage premature to link his murder to taxi violence. All avenues will be investigated.
