Another Zimbabwean Uber driver has been shot dead in SA

The conflict against ehailing drivers is by all accounts settling the score outrageous with the most recent casualty being Forget Mateza.

The Zimbabwean public was shot in the head in Gqeberha. In the interim, Eastern Cape area e-hailing representative Sechaba Lehana said drivers felt like chased prey with no place to stow away.

Police representative Captain Sandra Janse van Rensburg said Algoa Park police took care of a homicide protest at around 4pm on Friday at the GG Grounds in Tromp Street, Missionvale.

Inhabitants had alarmed police after they found the Zimbabwean man's body actually situated inside his vehicle.

"The examination is continuous and at this stage the rationale is obscure," Janse van Rensburg said.

Lehana expressed assaults against e-hailing drivers were turning out to be worryingly more continuous in Nelson Mandela Bay, with the subtleties encompassing Mateza's homicide still questionable.

He said Mateza was the second driver to be gone after soon after another e-hailing driver was clearly shot in the arm close to the Nelson Mandela University Missionvale grounds door on Wednesday.

"The noble man [Mateza] was an e-hailer. He was headed to a pickup just to [be killed]. The assaults against e-hailers have not halted," Lehana said.

"It resembles a slaughterhouse. We are prey, we are pursued, we have no place to stow away. The entire of Gqeberha is unfriendly towards e-hailers, there is no region better than the other, the way that a few occurrences are not in the public space doesn't mean they don't happen."

He gave the signal "hurt" couldn't completely portray how they were feeling as e-hailing drivers.
