Ceasefire Project drops gang crime in Hanover Park
Since the implementation of the project, gang violence has subsided in the area.
The initiative was rolled out in the area in 2013.
It employs outreach workers and so-called violence interrupters who are trained to deal in conflict resolution.
The City of Cape Town's J-P Smith says the initiative will now be expanded into Manenberg from September.
"They go out and counsel and engage with people where there has been a shooting incident, to try and prevent further revenge shooting and in so doing we've seen Hanover Park murder rates drop by a third."
