A 26-year-old man is to appear in the Wynberg Magistrates Court today in connection with the murder of five people in Kewtown, Athlone during last week. The incident is believed to be linked to internal fighting in the Americans gang that has already claimed ten lives this month.

Police spokesperson, Elliot Sinyangana, said that the arrest followed an intensive investigation but could not provide further details as the investigation is still ongoing. A second suspect in the murders is still being sought by the police.

At approximated 8pm on Thursday, 22nd November 2007 police were dispatched to a shooting incident at a block of flats in Kewtown. They found four people, three men and one woman, dead on the scene and a number of people injured. A fifth victim died in hospital later.
