The African National Congress
in the Western Cape
has called for Democratic Alliance councillor Willie Jaftha to be
investigated for his alleged involvement with gangs in Cape Town.
This follows Jaftha’s letter
which he submitted during argument in mitigation of sentence in the trial of 17
convicted gangsters. In the letter he requested the court to give convicted
murder Reyaaz Dennis a lenient sentence.
ANC’s Rhoda Bazier said ANC
has consistently questioned the ease of which the DA cuddles and protects the
gangs in the city by paying them and ensuring that they stay in business.
Bazier said it is clear to us,
the ANC, that there is a clear relationship between the gangs the HL’s and the
DA, while the blood is spilling in the Cape Flats between rival gangs.
“We see that the gangsters
have got access to weapons and ammunition and they of cause buy it with money
that has been given by the City of Cape Town, where they get tender processes
and huge amounts of money.” Bazier added.
