'Senseless' killings in Delft linked to gangsterism - community policing forum
The Delft Community Policing Forum says tensions are running high following at least 12 murders in the area this week.
On Friday morning the body of a woman was discovered in Symphony Way - she had been shot seven times.
The policing forum's Pastor Charles George has confirmed that a number of the killings are directly linked to gangsterism.
With the levels of gangsterism in Delft at the moment, there's no more surprise with regards to these senseless killings that are taking place.Pastor Charles George, Chairperson - Delft Community Policing Forum
George says while the community is being asked to assist, fear plays a role in residents' reluctance to come forward.
There's a level of fear from the community that they don't want to report things to the police because then they become a target.Pastor Charles George, Chairperson - Delft Community Policing Forum
