This comes after police and gangsters were involved in a fierce gun battle recently.
CAPE TOWN - More police officers have been deployed to gang-stricken Manenberg after a flare-up in shootings.
On Sunday night, police and gangsters were embroiled in a fierce gun battle in the area.
A young Manenberg mother wishes to remain anonymous says she does not want her baby boy to be exposed to the gang violence that's gripping their community.
The 17-year-old says she's too afraid to set foot outside her home.
"It's not safe anywhere today. You can't walk wherever you want anymore because they shoot and hurt innocent people."
No arrests have been made in relation to the recent shootings. Police have increased patrols in the area.
