The girl was not physically harmed. 


Shange’s husband Nkosingani, who was the deputy chairperson of Santaco in Durban West, was killed while leaving their homestead last month. 


The taxi council's KZN spokesperson, Sfiso Shangase, says although the motive for the killing remains unknown, they’re urging members to use dialogue to resolve any differences they may have.


"A spouse of an operator was assassinated. As Africans, we believe that you don't kill a woman even if there is a  war. We are pleading with individuals to report the matter to the police.

Shangase says Santaco launched an anti-gender-based violence campaign at the weekend, where they encouraged men to seek help with any mental health issues.


"We are also encouraging them to come forward, and they should not suppress their feelings because when you do so, you are going to be prone to a situation where you will just react badly, whereas you have been able to be assisted in terms of emotional intervention."
