Fenestie Mary, 27, has lived in Manenberg all her life. She was married there two days ago. SS: What does Manenberg mean to you? FM: Manenberg means a lot. The people think it is a naughty place, full of rudeness, that they just kill the people in Maneneberg, but it's not like that. I love Manenberg. SS: How have the gangs impacted your life? FM: If you are a gangster in Manenberg, the other people treat you like a gangster. I see good people here, and bad people. I'm a bit scared, but the gangs don't look for trouble with us people, only the other gangsters. Some rob innocent people. The gang leaders punish the gangsters who hurt innocent people. SS: What do you think could bring about change in Manenberg? FM: Dancing class or drama class or sports for the people.
