About the speaker

Wandisile Nqeketho is a passionate social entrepreneur from Khayelitsha that aims to change the conditions of the township in which he comes through his entrepreneurial endeavours. He is the founder of an unorthodox yet innovative museum that aims to alleviate gangsterism in gang ridden communities.

18Gangster Museum serves as a vehicle that aims to transport positive change in communities scourged by this destructive social ill (gangsterism). The journey started back in 2013 when Wandisile Nqeketho and Siyabulela Daweti decided to open 18Gangster Museum due to the heightening prevalence of gangsterism in the townships.

The museum opened its doors in 2016 and to date the museum under the leadership of Wandisile has worked with over 4200 children teaching them about the dire implications of partaking in gang activities as a tool to guide and mentor the young towards taking decision that are not detrimental towards their future and keep away from gangs.

Wandisile was nominated as part of the 200 most influential young South Africans by the mail and guardian, Alumni of the Salzburg global seminar and forms part of the Young African Leaders Institute.
