'Gangs are part of a health problem in Cape Town'' - author

accreditation

Author and investigative journalist, Don Pinnock, joins us in studio and tells us how pre-natal care directly affects the problem with gangs currently occurring in the city of Cape Town.

Pinnock has spent the last 30 years researching gangs in Cape Town and has formed a close bond with some of Cape Town's most dangerous gang members. Watch him explain epigenetics, and why governments should be looking to take care of pregnant mothers if they want to take care of the growing gang problem.
