The City of Cape Town has offered a R100,000 reward for information that could lead to the arrest of gunmen who allegedly shot dead two city-contracted security guards in Philippi.

The guards accompanied city employees to make repairs to a sewer pipe in Phola Park on Tuesday.

As the repair team gathered tools and examined the broken pipe, two gunmen reportedly approached the city vehicle and that of security personnel, and two other attackers headed toward a nearby toilet building. The gunmen then opened fire, killing the guards.
