What was supposed to be a pleasant day of fun and games in the Bonteheuwel community turned out to be a nightmare when a shooting claimed the life of a teenager.
On Monday hundreds of adults and children gathered in the C- Block area for a fun day. According to Bonteheuwel ward councilor Angus McKenzie, it all ended abruptly when gun shots rang out in the community.
Two individuals were shot. One young person, aged 18, was shot dead. The husband of one of the organizers was shot in the shoulder. The area is now very tense. “
