CAPE TOWN – Another gang-related attack in Mitchell’s Plain has left three people dead. Police have arrested four people so far.
The three men were shot dead on Monday in Lentegeur.
The Lentegeur community policing forum has strongly condemned the “senseless” murders and wants the police to deploy more visible officers at the local station
The CPF’s Byron de Villiers says that in light of the shooting incident, its safety structures will be activated on Saturday.
“We will be mobilising all the safety structures and we will be going into these areas to clean out these areas.”
Meanwhile, the Mitchells Plain United Residents Association’s Norman Janjies says it’s concerning that gang-related murders have increased over the past two years and is calling for an integrated anti-gang strategy.
“Government is not doing enough. When I say government, I mean provincial and national government. There needs to be an integrated gang plan that deals with prevention and intervention.”
The police say the man will appear in Mitchells Plain Magistrates Court once they have been formally charged.
