Gang of Gaxhai (Albanian: Banda e Gaxhait) was a criminal group created in March 1997 that operated in the city of Vlora during 1997, peaking of the criminal activity was during the period March–June 1997, when anarchy reigned in the South. The gang was established by Gazmend Braka, also known as Gaxhai, with some friends from the village of Cerkovinë, the city of Vlorë and other southern cities. Their main rivals were the Gang of Çole (Albanian: Banda e Çoles). Upon completion of the rebellion and the arrest of members of two gangs, the war between them ended.
