Cape Town - A 27-year-old man was shot and wounded outside the Bellville Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, Cape Town police said.

"He was shot in the head around 09:40," said Warrant Officer November Filander.

The man, from Delft, was about to appear in a dagga-related case but it was unclear if he was an accused or a witness.

"He was about to enter the building when occupants of a green Audi A4 fired shots," said Filander.

"We don't know if they aimed directly at him as there were other people there."

The man was taken to hospital in a serious condition.

On Monday, an Inkatha Freedom Party supporter was shot dead outside the Ntuzuma Magistrate's Court in KwaZulu-Natal in front of police and journalists.

A man was arrested at the scene and is due to appear in the same court on Wednesday.

      People don't change, I think all gangsters simply need to be taken out. Get rid of the scum! They have no respect for others lives and rights so theirs should not also not be respected.

    Blatant demonstration of absolute contempt for the SAPS and the government. The criminal element laughs at the powerless and inept weaklings that "protect" the law abiding citizens, the government and the constitution.

    Why don't we all just act as cowboys, shoot at will, drive as we wish coz clearly respect for the law is long gone. Better wear a bullet proof before you leave home coz it might easily be your last day.

    The root of it all is mankind abandoning God, because of all other "seeming to work religions or nonreligion"...As long as God lives, man who do against His will will suffer the consequences and sadly the generations will suffer too. Untill we repent, and God be the king of households, we shall exhibit more.SA is a house set upon a shaky, sandy foundation...how shall we stand, how shall we have peace? havent we seen what has become of America, a country that once stood on Godly principles,and we still mimick evrything done there. Oh Lord I pray: for each SA household to live according to ur precepts for they are not grievous but meant for our own good.
