Written by: Sithandwa Ngwetsheni

Cape Talk's Linzi Bourhill spoke to the co-founder of 18 gangster museum based in Khayelitsha,Wandisile Nqeketho.

18 gangster museum is a mobile museum that raises awareness about gangsterism so that people can clearly understand this societal ill.

The project gives ex-gangsters the opportunity to create and curate art for museum exhibitions. South Africans are then invited to take a tour led by an ex-gangster who is then able to share their personal life journey.

Nqeketho shares that this museum is a place of engagement where people can talk about the ills of society and come up with solutions.
