The 30-year-old American Gang member shot and killed Toufieg Samuels in cold blood in February 2017.
At the time of the incident, the mother of the deceased was a CPF member in Hanover Park. Arendse was arrested and remanded in custody during trial after his bail application was denied by the Athlone Magistrate’s court.
He was sentenced to 15 years direct imprisonment and declared unfit to possess a firearm.
