It's been another weekend of violence and tragedy for Cape Town's gang-ridden Bonteheuwel community.
On Saturday one woman was killed and another injured following a shooting in Kiaat Road, while on Monday morning a father of two was shot dead.
Community activist Ladovica Gordon says residents in the area fear for their lives.
Our kids can no longer play outside... you never know when one gang or the other gang is going to start shooting at each other.— Ladovica Gordon, Bonteheuwel community activist
In April the City of Cape Town announced that 100 law-enforcement officers would be permanently deployed to Bonteheuwel from June in order to curb gang violence.
Coming up to the end of the month, and Gordon says there's no sign of them.
We are still waiting and wanting to know where exactly are they?— Ladovica Gordon, Bonteheuwel community activist
If they have been deployed, why have we not seen a decrease in violence and killings?— Ladovica Gordon, Bonteheuwel community activist
Gordon says there are widespread misconceptions surrounding the identities of the true victims of gang violence.
Unfortunately, the bulk of the people getting killed are the innocent ones.— Ladovica Gordon, Bonteheuwel community activist
