A man found guilty of the murder of 7-year-old Ezra Daniels during a gang gunfight was sentenced to 50 years by the Western Cape High Court on Friday, police said.
Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana said Daniels was playing with a friend in Abdullah Moosa road in Parkwood, when a white VW Citi Golf drove down the street in 2017, spraying a rival gangster with bullets.
Daniels was caught in the crossfire and died.
Thirty-three-year-old Tasliem Bianchi was arrested with the four occupants of the vehicle, and finally, on Friday, was sentenced after entering into a plea agreement with the State.
He was charged with murder, two charges of attempted murder, two of possession of a firearm without a licence. He also faced two charges in terms of the Prevention of Organised Crimes Act (10 years).Back to crime news
