Community Safety MEC condemns Mfuleni shootings

The Western Cape’s Community Safety MEC, Albert Fritz, has condemned the spate of shooting incidents in Mfuleni that occurred on Sunday and Monday.

Ten people were killed in separate incidents. Three men were killed by 4 suspects in Ligwa Street, a 29-year-old was shot in a tavern by an unknown assailant, 2 men were shot and killed in Bosasa, and four people were killed in a suspected revenge shooting in the COVID-19 informal settlement on Monday.

Fritz has called on the public to come forward with any information and report it to SAPS

“I call on any members of the community with information to immediately come forward and to report such to SAPS. We cannot allow our communities to tormented and traumatised by dangerous criminals.  These acts are akin to terrorism and we must not protect those who hold our communities at ransom.”

‘’The SAPS provincial management in the Province has ordered that additional police be deployed to the area. As part of the SAPS 72-hour Activation Plan, provincial organised crime detectives are pursuing leads.’’ Fritz added.
