It’s a neighbourhood beset by gangs, guns and drugs; Westbury has been under siege for decades. The Johannesburg suburb is home to multiple violent gangs operating with impunity, and community members are caught in the crossfire.

Carte Blanche visits Westbury to investigate why it has become a gangster's paradise.
