Killed for walking in ‘Zoo land’

GONE: Duwayne Abrahams, 18

Teen shot dead in suspected gang-related shooting.

An 18-year-old man from Scottsdene was shot and killed and his 16-year-old friend injured because they dared to walk in the “wrong” area.

Duwayne Abrahams from Joseph Lane in Kraaifontein was shot and killed on Tuesday after he walked in the Zoo gang’s area.

Residents say the area is known as the Zoo because all the roads have
animal names.

His grandmother Sanna April, 67, says: “Ek het vir hom omgegee soos ‘n donkie wat nie sy plek moet verlaat nie.

“(On Tuesday) he slept for long and just walked out to get killed. We moved from Elsies River to Kraaifontein and my boy never went out. Innocent blood was spilt here today just like Barabas in the Bible. All we have now are pictures of him.”

The 16-year old was rushed to hospital for treatment.

Constable Noloyiso Rwexana confirms an investigation is underway for the murder.

“No one has been arrested as yet. Anyone with information that can assist the investigation is requested to contact Crime Stop on 08600 10111.”
