Children murdered in Clarke’s Estate were shot in the head execution style


Four people, including three primary school pupils, were shot dead by gangsters in Clarke’s Estate in Elsies River on Tuesday night. Family members told Cape Argus that the children were shot in the head, execution style.

Clarke’s Estate residents claim that three alleged members of the 28s gang were behind the attack. Their mission was to eliminate an alleged Disciple’s gang member, Venito Africa, alias CJ, 19, who died in the attack.

The pupils who died were Adriaan Junior “AJ” Alexander, 12, who was in Grade 4 at Holy Trinity Primary and sister and brother Toslin Samuels, 9, and Malcolm Samuels, 12, who family members said were shot, execution style, in the head.

Adriaan’s mother, Bianca, was shot in the back, while Mandy Samuels, the mother of the other two children, was shot in the side and thigh.

Incidentally, there was a witness in the murders, who is also an alleged gangster out on parole and who survived by hiding under beds. This witness identified the suspects, who were later nabbed by police.
