Cape Town - Underworld War
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.
A group of men appear to have formed a faction which started grabbing control of the lucrative nightclub security industry from more established figures.
This has sparked several gun battles, unearthed rumours of intelligence operatives being behind national underworld ructions and exposed tensions within police.
Meanwhile, the number of killed and wounded in shootings is climbing.
News24 has created its own showcase to detail what has led up to this, who is said to be linked and how raids by police, Hawks and other authorities fit in.
