Tackling gangsterism with guns blazing

Wandisile Nqetheko is tackling gangsterism guns blazing. The Khayelitsha born and based entrepreneur is the founder of 18 Gangster Museum – a museum that aims to educate young people about the dangers of gangsterism whilst assisting ex-gang members re-integrate back into society.

Khayelitsha is a 33 year old township and doesn’t yet have a museum, so the 18 Gangster Museum will also help to build the economy of Khayelitsha with the tourism market. The museum will be curated by ex offenders; giving them another shot at the life game by providing them with employment, a space to exhibit and sell their artwork, as well as inform people about gangsterism from those who’ve lived it. Fly with Wandisile and follow his journey here or on Red Bull Amaphiko.
