Ikhwezi Bus attacks raise serious concerns

Bullet holes serve as evidence of Thursday's attack on Ikhwezi buses

THREE Ikhwezi buses transporting Transnet employees were attacked in separate incidents on Thursday night.

The motive for the attacks are unknown at this stage.

One of the buses came under gunfire in Mzingazi, another was petrol bombed in Mandlankala in eSikhaleni and the third was stoned on the John Ross Parkway.

General Manager of Ikhwezi Bus Services, Suresh Mohunlal, said they were very concerned about the incidents.

‘We are not sure why they our buses were targeted and cannot speculate who the culprits behind the attacks are.

‘We will wait for the police to conclude their investigations.

‘In the meantime, we will continue to be vigilant as to ensure the safety of our drivers and passengers,’ he told the ZO.

Ikhwezi Bus Services are currently contracted to Transnet for the transportation of their employees.

Richards Bay Police spokesperson, Captain Debbie Ferrera, said no arrests have been made thus far.

‘The motive for the attack are currently unknown and a case of attempted murder has been opened,’ she said.

On Tuesday, Transnet contract workers bulldozed two police bakkies at the port while protesting for permanent employment.
