A Golden Arrow bus has been robbed, and the incident resulted in a fatality.
Police say a man was shot dead on a Golden Arrow Bus in Khayelitsha during a robbery.
Eyewitness News reports that three suspects boarded the bus in Lawulo Road and threatened passengers with a firearm.
The company has suffered more than 20 robberies on its buses in the past seven months.
