last Friday, for the first time, the mother of one of his victims, Chantelle Knight gave an interview to the tabloid, the south african Daily Voices, from almost twenty years of protection after I testified against him in 2003. With the thought of his daughter, who from then on can no longer embrace, he murmured: "Thank god it is over, we are free".
Man, stout, short hair, it was said he went around with his twin brother on the Bmw325is cabriolet and threw coins to the kids, as a kind of Robin Hood of the '90s. They were the untouchables. To Rashaad, the more the businessman that the robber had shot him and set fire in 1996. According to Rashied, was the police to orchestrate the setup of the scene to kill the brother then executed by Pagad (People Against Gangsterism and Drugs - people against gangs and drugs), a sort of paramilitary group of muslims in south Africa who said that he was to be fought the drug. Rashied is dead in the same street.
From the airport to the beauties of Cape Town, runs the highway that crosses the Cape Flats. There does not live well. There are heroin, cocaine and crack from all the parties, and robberies, kidnappings, theft. We are the Ugly Americans, the Junky Funkies, the Hard Livings, the 28s and many other bands, who are competing for a piece of land to impose their brand. This year, in the infernal circle of the Cape Flats between January to June have killed 1.874 people.
Rashied Staggie was considered a hero, so much so that the Bbc had interviewed, had taken a piece of international reputation and in the '90s dictated the law. "They are a brutal murderer," he responded to the reporter Schroeder in a break of the hearing in 2003 which brought him in jail for 15 years, and then discounted at 13. This was Mad Dog, a nickname that, for him, seemed, a rabid dog.
it Was he who had to arrange for the kidnapping and rape of a group of Chantelle Knight, of 2001, then 17 years old, rea have indicated a possible hiding place of the Staggie to the police. A boy a little larger than was killed, she first said it was dead. Only in a second moment it was out that she had changed the name and the place to escape retaliation.
The Los Angeles Times, Rashied painted as a good, which took care of the problems of the people, was to get loans, medicines, food. The bad guys were the Pagad. Takes gun, Glock 40, puts it on the table and says to the journalist: "I'll have to ammazzarne a bit before they sit down and talk with me."
it Could be just the Pagad to delete Rashied Staggie, it could be another gang, the 28s. According to the Cape Argus newspaper of Cape Town, is a war between the 28s and the Hard Living. Just Rashied would have ordered the killing of one affiliate to the 28s, despite the appearance of a new man, and dedicated to do good but was back in court for a story of smuggling. "The war is not over. There is evidence that the murders are the result of a struggle for control of the drug, and not only between the 28s and the Hard Livings, not only in the Cape Flats. The death of Rashied Staggie is the last piece," remarked one anonymous newspaper.
