30-year-old suspected ring leader of the Bloods gang, Kalvin Periasamy was laid to rest on Saturday, only a few days after he was gunned down by an unknown killer at the parking lot of the Gateway Mall in Umhlanga, Durban.

As reported by IOL News, no arrests in the case have been made thus far, leaving much to be speculated about who was involved in calling the hit on Periasamy.

Why was Kalvin Periasamy murdered?

The 30-year-old has been linked to a drug cartel that runs the streets of Phoenix, northwest of central Durban. Before his murder, the minibus and tow truck businessman was out on bail for a drug charge.

He was also going through another murder charge where he, 24-year-old Shaffique Cassim and Abdul Kader, were accused of murdering Enver Ramsamy in 2016.

However, before he could answer for all of the crimes he was accused of, the suspected Bloods ringleader was killed.

While this brought tears and sorrow to his family and close friends, the families of the victims he was suspected of killing rejoiced in what they described as “justice served”.

Shireen Ramsamy, the wife of Enver, revealed that she and her family have been praying for this moment to come for a long time.

“It is not something we are proud to say, but we are happy with what happened. We would never wish this on anybody, but what you do to others will be done unto you.

“We prayed and left it in God’s hands and now this has happened. He lay there just like my husband lay there three years ago,” Shireen said.

“He didn’t do it” – Periasamy’s family

Periasamy’s family has remained resolute in the fact that the attack on the 30-year-old was orchestrated by people who wanted him out of the taxi and tow truck business he supposedly thrived in.

“People made him out to be a drug lord, but he was never charged. He ran successful businesses that created jobs. He was a man of honour, a good man, but now all these bitter people who didn’t even know him are making disgusting comments about his character.

“It is a cruel world filled with judgemental people, but justice must be served,” Periasamy’s cousin, Chantelle, revealed.

The suspected druglord was laid to rest on Saturday, in a burial that was attended by his family as well as a large group of gangsters who, in their farewell bid, fired gunshots in the sky.
