Khayelitsha’s ‘Robin Hood’ lived for greed, until it killed him
Ayanda ‘Borhey’ Mtila was a revered and feared member of his community. He died in a mysterious hail of bullets
Ayanda “Borhey” Mtila did not need the money from cash-in-transit heists any more. Township extortion was far more lucrative and in Khayelitsha he already bore the title “president”.
His friends even warned him that his next heist would come across as greedy, but on October 13, as de facto leader of the Boko Haram gang, he planned and executed his last cash-in-transit heist.
Friends believe this last move is what got him killed and toppled the Boko Haram gang’s criminal superpower status. ..
