He was allegedly attacked and hacked with a panga by angry residents who said they have had enough. The Citizen first broke the story about this group threatening ordinary residents last month.
At the time, police spokesman Tshifhiwa Mitileni said the group of boys were carrying dangerous weapons ranging from pangas, knives and other sharp objects.
The group, from Eatonside, has been committing crimes in Sebokeng’s Zone 7, 6 and 3.
Speaking to The Citizen yesterday, Mitileni said angry residents decided to take matters into their own hands on Saturday by burning down eight houses, where the alleged gangsters live.
“Eight houses were burnt to ashes by community members. “We have arrested eight community members who will be appearing in court soon, facing charges of attempted murder,” Mitileni said.
He also confirmed that seven members of the Ama Wrong Turn group members have been arrested. Their ages range between 14 and 22.
