Xolani Opinion: Gang rivalries are spilling into Gauteng with no cop intel

Xolani Gwala shares how he happened to be at a hospital where the alleged 28s Gang boss was admitted.

On Thursday, alleged 28s gang boss Ralph Stanfield was travelling with a friend in an Audi R8 when gunmen opened fire on the vehicle. Stanfield was near Melrose Arch when the incident happened and managed to drive himself to the hospital.

Gwala questions the spread of rival gangs and what intelligence is doing about this.

You would have heard Mandy talking about this, the turf wars that are happening in Cape Town apparently spilling over in Gauteng.
