Gang violence erupts in two Cape Town areas

Gang violence has flared up in two parts of Cape Town, at a time when most young people are beginning their new school year.

Hanover Park has seen parents living in fear of their children’s well-being as they could be caught in the cross-fire of a territorial tik war between rival gangs, the Americans and the Laughing Boys.

Meanwhile three people — including an innocent 20-year-old youth — have been gunned down in Manenberg.

Three more people were seriously injured in two shootouts in the area during the day. In one of the incidents, residents claim that more than 80 shots rang out near Red River primary school.

A 20-year-old male has been arrested. Police spokesperson, Superintendent Billy Jones, confirmed that the arrest of the youth was linked to a suspected gang-related shooting.
