Cape Town - Two men were shot dead in their parked car in Lotus River, Cape Town, Western Cape police said on Monday.

      Jackie, where do you want Patricia to be?. Out there helping the people caught in this weather, bringing relief where possible or playing Jane in a gang ridden area?.

    And the Army is where? Useless ANC.leaving Cape Tonians to be butchered like animals at the whims of these thugs,all because we vote DA or just the fact that western Province belongs to Hellen.

      The Army won't come to help, the politicians are clapping their hands in glee because we have the gangs to cope with. It will be a different kettle of fish once the gangs move up country won't it?.

      Can you just be reasonable for just one minute? Now, these people are killed for their political affiliation? Rubbish, this is Gang's fine blaming the ANC for certain things but you're stretching it a bit far (and I am no fan of the ANC. For all you know it's DA supporters shooting DA supporters...

    What do these gangs gain from doing these horrible sins? Do they just kill for fun or they do it for money. I just hope 1 day they rot in jail, if nt hell.
