Attempted hit on suspected gang leader at Cape Town airport

Alleged Sexy Boys gang leader Jerome “Donkie” Booysen was yet again the target of a shooting, this time at Cape Town International Airport.

This is the third time this year that he’s been shot at. According to News24, he was shot four times on Wednesday morning after apparently being chased into the airport. He was taken to hospital.

Police confirmed that two people were wounded but did not reveal their identities. One was a bystander.

“The 50-year-old man was at the drop-and-go section of the airport when occupants in an unknown sedan opened fire on him and fled,” police spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo said.

“During the shooting another man, approximately 30 years of age, was struck by a stray bullet.

“Both victims were treated at the scene and removed to hospital. The condition of the victims is unknown at this stage.”

It is alleged that a BMW X5 and a white vehicle were involved in the incident.

A call to Booysen’s cellphone by News24 on Wednesday morning went unanswered.

Booysen was the target of a shooting in September in Bellville south. He was not wounded. On 8 May, he was wounded in a shooting in Elsies River. Sources said he’d been on his way to visit another man, who was also shot, in the Cravenby area.

Operations at the airport have not been affected, Airports Company South Africa (Acsa) said.
