Police spokesman Jay Naicker said on Sunday the drivers were on their way home from the funeral of a colleague on Saturday evening when their vehicle was ambushed in KwaZulu-Natal province.
The drivers, who were members of the Gauteng taxi association, were in a minibus driving along the R74 when unknown gunmen launched an ambush and opened fire.
South African news site News24 quoted Naicker as saying the police taxi violence unit had been dispatched to the scene of the shooting.
The attack happened between the towns of Colenso and Weenen in the east of the country, and the victims were from Gauteng province.
