Elsies River gangs battle over extortion turf


A new dimension is playing out between gangs in Elsies River.

The Community Policing Forum’s spokesperson, Imraahn Mukaddam says that gangs are now contesting revenue streams from extorting spaza shops in the area. He says that this is adding to the violence caused by gang initiation operations.

Mukaddam was speaking as two 17-year-old boys were shot execution style in the space of four hours this weekend. The boys’ parents are known community activists.
