In the past 4 weeks, 21 people have died in gang-related murders in Manenberg. Louwana, pictured here, lost her 28-year-old son Leeroy last week. After his death she said, "I know he murdered too. I want my son's killers to know that I forgive them." There are clearly a lot of tragic decisions at play here, but let us remember that what is truly shameful are the systems and institutions that have repeatedly failed the people of Manenberg and rendered them vulnerable.
