Jerome Booysen of Sexy Boy's life could be under threat

According to Eye Witness News reporter Kevin Brandt, Jerome Booysen of Sexy Boys gang's life is allegedly under threat after a man, dressed as a woman gained access to the hospital where Booysen was admitted.

It is reported that a fight apparently broke out at the hospital and a man linked to a gang was wounded.

Booysen was wounded in a shooting at Cape Town International Airport on Wednesday.

Brandt says there have already been three attacks on Booysen's life this year alone. It's still unclear who is behind these attacks but according to media reports, the attacks are linked to the underworld gang's conflict over the club security in the city.
