The Mannenberg campaign envisioned to uplift the youth and get rid of stigma attached to gangesterism in the area will celebrate their anniversary tomorrow.
A conference will be held to assess whether the campaign has been efficient.
Mario Wanza, organiser of the campaign, told the Cape Times that community members in Manneberg struggle to steer the stigma of gansterism away from the area
Wanza says employers think all people living in Mannenberg are gangsters or drug dealers. He adds that this causes the youth to feel rejected and find it pointless to search for work.
The conference is expected to adopt a plan of action for the next year.
