Baaqir Joshua, 24, Killed in What is Reported to be a Mistaken Identity Case


Baaqir Joshua, 24, was shot just before sunset a few metres from his home in Bonteheuwel in what his family believes was a case of mistaken identity.

In less than a week since Moegamat and baby Zhario Johnson were shot in the streets of Bonteheuwel, another family loses a loved one.

According to Ward Councillor Angus Mckenzie, a man, believed to be Baaqir, was shot dead in Karee Street.

Michelle, Joshua’s cousin told reporters, “My cousin was indeed a sweet soul, he wouldn’t hurt anyone. Pray for his family, they lost their father a year ago and now Baaqir’s beautiful baby and wife is without a father and a husband.”
