‘Mayhem’ after boy dies
Crime scene, crime, saps, police tape, murder

“Mayhem” broke out in Fisantekraal this past Sunday evening after a boy was stabbed in the neck in a gang related incident.

Diego Davids (16), known by his middle name, Boots, was stabbed in his neck with a panga and died at the scene.

According to Capt Marchell Rhode, spokesperson for the Durbanville police, the police received a complaint just before 20:00 of a murder that occurred in Saartjie Baartman Street in Fisantekraal.

“When the police arrived at the scene, the community was riotous and prevented the police members from entering the murder scene.

“The police members had to withdraw and the public order police unit was summoned to the scene,” he says.

A 27-year-old man was arrested for the murder of the boy.

Andie Steele-Smith from Durbanville, a local community pastor and volunteer of Hillsong Africa Foundation in Fisantekraal, says the deceased was one of theyoung gang members who had been part of the peace process between two gangs in Fisantekraal about four months ago.

“He was brutally murdered by a member of a third rival gang,” he says on his Facebook page.

“And then mayhem broke out . . .,” he says.

“Despite the pain of his loss, I refuse to believe that the devil has the upper hand. I can still see the majesty even amidst the madness.

“Firstly, this young man gave his life to Jesus just a fortnight ago surrounded by his fellow gang members.

“And then tonight, six of his ‘brothers’ gave their lives to Jesus in the aftermath of this tragedy.

“So whilst we all gathered together to mourn, the majesty of God was still on full display – as it always is,” he says.
