A 15-year-old Mitchells Plain boy has been shot dead while playing soccer with his friends.
Yaseen January died just before boeka time on Monday evening.
He was shot by evil gunmen who opened fire on the boys while playing street soccer close to his house.
Yaseen was struck six times in the stomach and left for dead.
His two friends took one gunshot each, one in the leg and one in the stomach, and survived.
A wounded Yaseen ran to his house in Hollyhock Street in Lentegeur where he died before the ambulance could get to him.
According to neighbours, Yaseen was a well-liked boy, and was a hafith, someone who memorised the Qur’an.
