A 33-year-old alleged gang leader from Parkwood in Cape Town's South Peninsula has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for various crimes committed. Tasliem Bianchi was apprehended in 2017 shortly after a shooting incident in the area which claimed
the life of a seven-year-old boy. Police spokesperson, Noloyiso Rwexana, says Bianchi entered into a plea agreement with the state and was convicted on counts of murder, attempted murder and possession of illegal ammunition. " In September the third, the deceased, a seven year old boy Ezra Daniels was playing with his friends when a white Citi VW Golf drove down the street. The occupants of the vehicle opened fire at a rival gang member and in the
process Ezra was fatally wounded. The shooter was identified and he was arrested. The accused was sentenced to 50 years imprisonment."
