The African National Congress in the Western Cape welcomed the conviction of six members of the 28’s gang found guilty on three counts including murder and attempted murder. 

ANC Spokesperson on Community Safety Dorothea Gopie said MEC Dan Plato is a close acquaintance of 28’s gang leader Saliem John. 

Gopie said the verdict proves that MEC Plato was wrong on his opinion on gangs.  The MEC has been denying all along the involvement of some people in the gang wars that is happening in the province. 

In response MEC Dan Plato’s Spokesperson Greg Wagner said MEC Plato welcomes the arrests and verdict of the 28’s gang and that he will not stop his work to get rid of gangs in the province. 

Wagner said MEC Plato will continue to engage the youth at risk in many of the gang areas in the province in order to them into FET colleges.

“MEC Plato said with every youth that chooses an education over a life of crime that would be one less criminal on our streets” Wagner added.
