Milnerton police detectives have launched a manhunt for six suspects who shot and killed five people in Joe Slovo.

The manhunt for six suspects who shot and killed five people in Joe Slovo, Milnerton, continues with no arrests made yet. This as community safety and security MEC Albert Fritz is set to meet police commissioner Yolisa Matakata over a spate of mass killings on the Cape Flats recently.

 

The Joe Slovo victims were killed in two different houses by the same suspects in Sekowa and Dada streets last Thursday. Police spokesperson Novela Potelwa said Milnerton detectives were hard at work trying to apprehend the suspects as well as determine the motive for the murders.

 

According to reports from the two scenes, the six suspects arrived at a house in Sekowa Street, Joe Slovo, after 10pm looking for an individual identified only by name. One suspect was shot in the head and killed a woman whose age is yet to be determined. Another woman who was with her was hit in the head and injured.

 

 

Shootings last week claimed the life of a 28-year-old man in Galilee Court in Hanover Park, and injured seven people, who were subsequently taken to hospital. Vernon Philander’s brother, Tyron, 32, was shot and killed in a street in Ravensmead last week.

 

The spate of shootings across the province over the past week is completely unacceptable. Gangsters and criminal elements cannot be allowed to continue exploiting and terrorising our communities. Violent crime cannot be the norm in our society.” Fritz said. He is expected to meet Matakata on Wednesday.
