Cape Town - A Cape Flats gangster has been sentenced to 23 years behind bars after admitting he shot and killed another gangster at the funeral of his fallen comrade.
Moegamat Sedick Davids, 29, a member of the Ugly Americans gang, said he murdered Jeremia Jordaan, a Hard Livings gangster, in February 2016, because Jordaan had killed his friend.
Davids, from Manenberg, was sentenced at the Cape High Court on Friday after a plea agreement with the State.
He faced eight charges ranging from aiding and abetting criminal gang activity, under the Prevention of Organised Crime Act (POCA), to murder and attempted murder, as well as four counts of possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition.
He was found guilty of murder, for which he was sentenced to 18 years behind bars.
