WATCH: Pre-launch of Mitchell’s Plain’s first museum

The Y-Wise Up Museum, based in Strandfontein, was pre-launched on Tuesday September 29. 

The museum depicts positive and negative aspects of life on the Cape Flats. 
This includes highlighting those from the area who played a role in the struggle against apartheid as well as the devastation caused by social ills such as gang violence.
Director of YMCA (Young Men’s Christian Association), Ricardo De Reuck, who initiated the museum, said it will officially launch in December.
