More bloodshed in Hanover Park
A peace treaty broken by two gangs has led to more bloodshed in Hanover Park.
CAPE TOWN - The Hanover Park Community Policing Forum on Wednesday said it planned to meet with residents to discuss new steps to stop the bloodshed in the area.
The first fresh outbreak of gang violence resulted in the end of a peace treaty signed by two prominent gangs in area, the Americans and Mongrels, six months ago.
Four people were killed and three others injured when rival gang members opened fire on one another over the past weekend.
CPF spokesperson, Weldon Cameron said, “We are busy formulating a plan for a bloodless and amicable solution to this problem we are sitting with.”
Cameron said they wanted peace in Hanover Park.
“We are most upset that something like this could have happened and we are also trying to get behind the real reason that the peace treaty was broken.”
