Four people have been killed in Mitchell's Plain. This is the latest of incidents in the gang infested area. SANDEF has said in a statement, "Due to budget constraints, we are not able to cover all corners of Cape Town..."We are doing our best to cover the hotspot areas..." they added.

This follows the shooting of a high profile Hawks officer in her own home of Table View, Cape Town on Sunday Night, 10 November 2019. Lt Colonel Huitbrecht Christina Stemmet, 47, was shot twice and died on the scene.

Provincial Hawks spokesperson Lt-Col Philani Nkwalase described Stemmet as a “seasoned and dedicated officer”, who attached to the serious corruption investigation team.

Since the army has been deployed in Cape Town in July, little has been done to curb the surge of gang wars as a ceasefire was reached temporarily, but other areas in less patrolled communities have not felt the difference as the gangs move from one spot to another.
