Voice Reporters | July 19, 2019

Gangs on the Cape Flats say they do not fear the army and will carry on with their “operations” as normal.

In fact, some dik dinge welcome the idea of soldiers on the Flats, saying fewer innocent people will die now.

But skollies say they don’t skrik for the army.

High-ranking members from several gangs on the Cape Flats spoke to the Daily Voice on condition of anonymity.

A member of the Dixie Boys said: “Die army moet maar kom, my girl, ons kannie nog worry nie.

“You know, people keep calling us (drug) dealers, we’re not dealers but small business owners. Yes, we may be going to be a bietjie swak (with the army here) but ons gat aan.”

The gangster, in fact, welcomed the army, saying: “Too many innocent people are being killed. It’s right that the army is coming, this will stop all the shooting and make it safer for people to just live in peace.”

The Junky Funky Kidz (JFK) say they’re also min gepla about the army, with one member bragging that they’re “invincible”.

“This won’t touch us. We’re too big and we’ve got factions. We look after our people (community).

“Ja, you get those that kla (complain) but do you think people are going to stand against those who feed them? Nee, my girl,” he says.

The gangster says police corruption plays a major role in the “success of their business”.

“Die boere (cops) is klaar so vuil. Why do you think they never find anything?” he says.

“They do drugs, they suip and like to borrow money and who gives it to them? All we ask from them is that we are kept aware of what happens.”

He admits some of their members shoot innocent mense but says they are being punished under “the law of the nommer”.

“Those that shoot the innocent kry sy dag by ons. We have our laws and we do enforce it even if people think we are barbare,” he added.

Members of the G-Unit gang refused to comment about the army, saying: “Die’s kinner k**.”

Meanwhile, a leader of the Mongrels gang, whose “biggest sale items” are perlemoen, tik and mandrax, laughed when asked how the army would affect them.

“We are business people, so whatever happens around us, the business goes on. We will know when they come and how they come and what time they will come. This has always been our way. Nothing will stop us from doing what we do.”

The Americans gang, which deals in illegal firearms and ammunition, dagga, tik, mandrax and sex workers, agrees.

“I saw the arrival of the troops, most of them are in my area,” one leader says.

“I have safe houses and have been able to view the activity of all Law Enforcement officers.

“We do not stop business because things get hot. The army will come and go, but people’s needs will always be there.”

A member of the Vikings gang says their main “revenue” comes from tik, heroin and providing firepower to other gangs.

“We don’t just work on the Cape Flats, our business is international. We will slip through the cracks, we always find a way. We never kill people, that is not what we do,” the man says.

A member of the Hard Livings gang insists their “business” of selling drugs and guns is legit and that they do not murder innocents.

“We are business people, man. The army can come and see if they find anything wrong here. We will not run and they will find nothing.

“They will leave and life will go on. We do not take the lives of the innocent.”

A member of the Sexy Boys says: “We don’t do small business, ons maak mass sales. I serve soup and bread to all the poor people in different areas every day. They (soldiers) can queue for their portion. We are not afraid, and the army has nothing to fear from us.”

  1. Sometimes you got to wonder whose more naive here; the gangs or us law abiding citizens. I’m sure there are those of us that don’t share this enthusiasm everyone seems to have. This is all a show, it’s just a facade. If gangs can speak this confidentily, best believe nothing much will change. Those in power wouldn’t want to disrupt this system, it works so well why would they! Keep the poor and middle class fighting amongst each other while we accumulate the wealth.

  2. It’s true what they’re saying. Some of these guys are on their pay roll. And benze I mistake by letting us know that bazofaka amajoni.
