A bus driver has been shot and wounded while travelling on the N2 highway near Nyanga on the Cape Flats. Police Spokesperson, FC Van Wyk says they are probing the possibility that the incident is linked to the ongoing taxi violence in the Western Cape.

More than 80 people have been killed in the province during the feud since the beginning of the year.

Several routes have been affected by the unrest with limited services operating in certain areas.

Van Wyk says no arrests have been made as yet in connection with the latest shooting incident.
