Andrew Rosenberg, 26, was gunned down in Bongo Street on August 2  2017.

Police spokesperson Colonel Priscilla Naidu said that Augustus Kamfer, 19, was arrested two days later in Leith Street, Helenvale, after being connected to the murder.

Kamfer, who is affiliated to the New Kids Gang, was sentenced to 12 years in the Port Elizabeth Regional court on Wednesday.
