Police are investigating a shooting at the home of Transport MMC Rehana Moosajee in Johannesburg.

A security guard was shot when an unknown number of men tried to break into her home on Wednesday night.

He is in a stable condition in hospital – the motive for the attack is unclear.

Mossajee has been spearheading the Bus Rapid Transit system in the city.

With fears taxi drivers could resort to violence in a bid to prevent the controversial BRT from going ahead, the project’s busses were heavily guarded during the first few weeks of operating.

Days after the launch two people were wounded when unknown gunmen opened fire on one of the busses in Soweto.
