Gang boss 'Donkie' dodges death for the sixth time in 15 months

Cape Town gang boss Jerome “Donkie” Booysen has dodged death for the sixth time in 15 months. The leader of the Sexy Boys gang came under fire at a Mall shortly after having lunch. In March, Booysen was driving when gunmen opened fire on his vehicle. Booysen survived the attack because his car, a black Porsche Cayenne, is bulletproof.

There were four attempts on Booysen’s life last year, including one at the Cape Town International Airport. The first attempt was in May, when he was shot in the neck in a drive-by shooting. The second attempt was in September when the car the shooters thought he was travelling in was shot at 50 times, with 21 bullets hitting the target.
In October, another attempt on his life was made at the airport where the gang boss was hit four times in the upper body. His killer's gun jammed. A week later, while recovering at a Bellville hospital, an assassin allegedly tried to take Booysen out with snake venom.
