2012-07-05 07:29

What is your take on the below and where do we actually stand on this matter. How can we better the lives of these so called lost souls? I Think its time we stand up and do something about it

The 2 Gangs located in Khayelitsha called Vatos Locos and Vuras, also the same gangs are growing slowly in Nyanga, Gugulethu & Philippi

Vatos locos

are located inside khayelisha from D-Section up to Litha Park, age members from 12 and upwards and majority of these members are from 14-18 years old, some in Primary School and Some in High School.Members include Girls and Boys.

Vuras also known as the Siberians

are located In SiteB including C-Section of khayelitsha, age members from 12 and upwards and majority of these members are from 14-18 years old, some in Primary School and Some in High School.

Members include Girls and Boys.

Now they saying they fighting for freedom to go anywhere in Khayelitsha and some of them lost count of how many murders they have committed. Both groups believe in order to go anywhere in Khayelitsha they have to fight each other. Weapons used are okapi, pangas, Axes, Spades, Hammers and older one they carry guns from Machine gun to 9mm. This freedom is not in streets only also in schools where they tabbed each other infront of teachers and parents. Education to them is not important what’s important to them is territory and be well known,

How do we get affected by this:

Innocent learners from schools who their priority is getting education they get victimized by these thugs and get affected that some of them they drop out. Community is not safe cause ppl get robbed and killed by these thugs.

Now ppl are scared to walk at night or ppl have to locked their houses. Parents are scared to even send their children to shops cause it might be the last time to see them. What is worse girls also fight using knives with one another.

So knowing the above, how can we all stand together and fight this mess.

Cause here u dealing with kids to see not brighter future, only thing they see if Material value & fame from gangs.
