CAPE TOWN - The wife of a reformed gangster-turned-pastor who was wounded in a drive-by shooting was discharged from hospital, the Western Cape Health Department said on Tuesday.

Ivan Waldeck was shot several times when gunmen opened fire on his car in Bellville South on Sunday.

He and his wife were heading home from a church service when the incident occurred.

The shooting is believed to be gang related.

Health spokesperson Mark van Der Heever said, "The husband is still in hospital and the doctors are monitoring his condition."

Community policing forums expressed concern over the latest incidents of gang-violence in the province.

About a dozen people have been killed in a string of shootings across the city over the past 10 days.

Residents blamed drugs and ongoing turf wars for the increase in shootings.

Over 30 people, including children, were killed in gang violence in the province in 2012.
