survivors of bus ambush in limpopo believe the attack was premeditated

Passengers on the bus which was attacked on the N1 between Modimolle and Kranskop in Limpopo say they believe that the ambush was premeditated.

Two women were shot and killed and one was critically wounded by two men who boarded the bus in Pretoria. The bus, with more than 80 passengers, was travelling from Pretoria to Harare, Zimbabwe.

One of the passengers says an occupant of a vehicle behind the bus also started shooting and forced the bus off the road.

“There was a car behind the bus. It just started shooting at the bus. After that, there were two guys just right inside the bus they force the driver to come off the road. The guy who was driving the car jumped inside and they start forcing people to take out the money and take out their cell phones. They were armed … they did shoot two women. Unfortunately, they lost their lives,” explains one passenger.

Passengers were robbed of various items including money and cell phones during the attack. They are opening cases at the Bela Bela police station.

Ishmael Maswoveri’s relative was also inside the bus when the incident happened. He says bus owners must find better ways to protect passengers.

“It makes me feel uncomfortable and I think the owner of the buses must find a way to protect their customers for their own safety to and from Zimbabwe”, says a relative of one of the passengers.
