WC man shot in Durban e-hailing cab

Graeme Jansen was travelling in an e-hailing service when he came under fire on Friday.


Police say the driver left him on the side of the road at an off-ramp.


Jansen was later picked up and rushed to the hospital where he died.


Cato Manor police are investigating a robbery and murder case.


Graeme's mother Tilla Jansen, who is from Vredenburg on the Cape West Coast, says how her son died is hard to accept.


"I can't believe they shot him like that. I am broken." 

 " I'm angry because why did my son die that way, he never harmed anyone, he didn't do any wrong and I want justice for him." 

Graeme's friend Robbie Cairncross says they are all in shock.


''Everybody wants answers and wants to know why," he said.

He managed to call his girlfriend while in the hospital and told her he was shot. He told her he was going into the operating theatre and asked if she can pray for him, for his friends to pray for him." 


Graeme Jansen is survived by his 8-year-old son.
