Police have made swift arrests after three young men were killed in apparent gang-related incidents in the Western Cape over the weekend.

On Friday passers-by came across the bodies of two partially clothed men. Simthebred Ntengento aged 17 and Unathi Mavuduka, aged 20 years old, was found on the corner of Leiden Avenue and Bakker Road in Leiden.

On Saturday police arrested two men in connection with the murders of the two Delft men. They were found in their underwear, shot execution style.

"Evidence found on the scene concludes that the incident was gang-related. It definitely is gang-related due to a number of reasons," says police spokesperson, Billy Jones.

In a separate incident also on Saturday, police swooped on a 22-year-old male, after 16-year-old Wayne Hendricks was fatally wounded in a drive-by shooting near his home in Belhar.

The suspect is to appear in the Bellville Magistrates court on Tuesday, 26 May, on a charge of murder. Jones says shots were fired at Hendricks while he was standing on a pavement talking to a friend on Friday, 25 May. Police were able to make the arrest after receiving a tip-off but they cannot confirm the motive for the killing.

Anyone with information that can assist the police with their investigation should call CrimeStop on the call-share number, 08600 10111.
