Mbalula condemns staged drive-by shooting in Elsies Rivers
In the short video, a green car is seen driving down a street, shots are then fired from inside the vehicle at a group of men.
CAPE TOWN - Police Minister Fikile Mbalula has raised concern over a hoax video purporting to show a drive-by shooting in Elsies River.
The video surfaced on social media last week.
Police told Eyewitness News they had no record of an incident.
In the short video, a green car is seen driving down a street.
Shots are then fired from inside the vehicle at a group of men on the side of the road.
It's since been discovered the incident was staged.
Minister Mbalula has warned the public against circulating false or staged gang violence footage, adding that it wastes public resources.
Mbalula says those responsible for making the footage will be brought to book and will face the full might of the law.
