The attack happened at KZN Transport's offices in Merebank in the early hours of Monday.

Eight suspects were arrested on Wednesday. Police say they were positively identified by the survivors during an identity parade.

They were due to appear in court on Thursday, but the matter wasn't enrolled at the Durban Magistrate's Court.

According to the provincial National Prosecuting Authority, there is currently no evidence linking them to the crime.

The union’s KZN spokesperson, Mlungisi Ndlovu, says they're puzzled by the developments.

"We are very disturbed because as PSA in the province, we're very concerned about the safety of our employees. If you see some of these incidents, [this] was a very barbaric criminal activity."

 "We also respect the rights of the suspects. They should have collected all the evidence before making a decision. Now the NPA must be able to come on board and indicate what's happening and also SAPS must ensure that the real people get arrested."
