WATCH: EFF candidate councillor Thulani Shangase’s killing not related to taxi violence, says Santaco

Despite his links to the taxi industry in PMB, slain EFF ward councillor candidate Thulani Shangase’s murder was not related to the violence in the industry.

Sokhela on Wednesday described Shangase as a good employee who was helpful to taxi drivers and owners alike in the area.Speaking to the media outside Shangase’s home in Plessislaer, Sokhela said that the murder was not due to Shangase’s taxi industry-related activities.

“Shangase was working very well with the taxi industry in Umgungundlovu and he used to help our drivers and our owners to make sure that there is stability on the roads and if there’s anything that he didn’t understand he used to call me to ask how to deal with it and I would go out there and assist him if it is necessary to do that.

“As he has passed away we as the taxi industry are feeling very sorry,” he said.Police Minister Bheki Cele said the police were actively probing six apparently politically motivated killings in the province as fears grow that the latest incidents could lead to yet another bloody spate. headtopics.com
