Anyone who still thinks gangsterism in Cape Town is a “Flats” issue had another rude awakening on Tuesday, when a leading criminal advocate was executed as he dropped his children at their private school.

Pete Mihalik, 50, who died in his car as he dropped off his son and daughter around 7.35am, was due in court next week to defend Nafiz Modack, who faces trial for extortion - and many sources believe this is behind Tuesday’s killing.
