Two arrested after a 10-year-old girl was murdered

Mitchell’s Plain police have arrested two people, aged 21 and 26, for the murder of a 10-year-old girl who was killed during a shoot-out between rival gangs in Tafelsig, Mitchells Plain, on Sunday night.
Police spokesperson Novela Potelwa said one suspect, was arrested in Olifantshoek Street in Tafelsig, while the other was caught with an unlicensed firearm, not far from the scene.
Premier of the Western Cape, Allan Winde, said that the Western Cape government has recently introduced its own safety plan which, he says, will both increase the number of law enforcement officers on the ground, and implement violence prevention strategies with the long-term goal of reducing the murder rate.
Community Safety MEC, Albert Fritz, commended the Mitchell’s Plain police and Anti-Gang Unit members who responded to the random shooting between rival gangs in Tafelsig and arrested the two suspects.
Abie Isaacs, chairperson of the Mitchells Plain Community Police Forum, said they would gather the community to oppose bail for the suspects.
