Cape Town - In March 2017, simmering tensions in the underworld boiled over in the Western Cape, resulting in a battle and skirmishes which have spilled over from the streets into some popular Cape Town venues.

This has sparked several gun battles, unearthed rumours of intelligence operatives being behind national underworld ructions and exposed tensions within police.
