Three were shot dead, while the remaining people sustained wounds which included a five-year old girl and a six-year old boy.
On Friday, three suspects shot and got a man wounded. These suspects are yet to be arrested by the police.
The next morning, also in the same environment, another victim was murdered after he was shot dead in his house.
Andre Traut from the police said later on Saturday afternoon, eight other people were also shot.
“A 28-year-old man was shot and killed – and seven other people were wounded and taken to hospital including a 5-year-old girl and a 6-year-old boy. The possibility that the incident is gang-related is not ruled out.”
Yesterday, another man was killed. Ebrahim Abraham, community leader said little or nothing is done for the protection of residents, most especially the young vulnerable children.
He said fear has driven the minds of witnesses away from coming forward to witness.
“Some of the community (members) are not prepared to give their names and identify who the shooters are even they have seen, because they fear revenge from these youngsters. SAPS is not prepared to work with the community.”
No arrests have occurred so far.
