Guide Bio

I am a sightseeing guide and the founder of a unique tour company specializing in township and gangsterism tours. The fascinating thing about gangsterism is although its members have no formal education or accolades, they manage to gain so much control over the community. This allure had me intrigued no less. The culture was prevalent and it became easy enough for me to be a part of the facilitation of illegal activity on the Cape Flats. As am ex gang member, I can ensure the tours are conducted safely.

My upbringing had challenging encounters yet also redeeming experiences. I grew up in a household of five children where my mother raised us by herself. Athlone, the suburb I call home at the time, was a site for many underground dealings that perpetuated the livelihood of gangsterism in the community.

In the late 1980’s, the situation in my household grew immensely difficult. I felt like I had to take some of the responsibility of my family’s wellbeing upon myself. I left school at an early age and decided to work in the building industry as a laborer. The wages were below minimum, obviously this did not suit me at all. I fell into a system which was the illegal business of crime. It became a practice, a lifestyle, a way to generate money in the quickest way possible.

I was able to escape that life and build a life proud to be part of.

Chisana Tours

My aim to give exposure to customers about the history, lifestyle and background of individuals who are affiliated and attached to gangs in the Cape Flats area of Cape Town. The tour will also educate its customers as to how these gangs operate and function. As an ex gang member myself, I will ensure the tour is conducted safely.

Thank you for submitting a review. It will be published shortly.
