Gang peace treaties not supported in Lavender Hill
24 October 2011
The Lavender Hill community policing forum says peace treaties between local gangs are not worth it.
This comes after a 14-year-old girl was killed by a stray bullet on Tuesday, and on Saturday a 18-year-old girl was shot and wounded in the cross-fire between police and suspected gangsters.
The Lavender Hill CPF's Kevin Southgate said they are disappointed as there have been too few interventions in gang violence.
The Western Cape Community Safety MEC Dan Plato has been asked by the Lavender Hill Community Forum to intervene.
