Fiona has positive feedback on her request

While some of us are not directly affected by the gang situation in Cape Town, there are many people who cannot escape the impact they cause.

We recently had a case where Justin Langley was killed in Uitsig because he dared to confront some gang members. The attack also led to his uncle dying of his injuries.

Fiona MacDonald Hall contacted the breakfast show, with an appeal on behalf of her domestic worker, Tina, and her 22 year-old son, Yandisa.

Yandisa has been unemployed for a while, and has been receiving unwelcome visits from local gang members. The harassment has led to him feeling extremely depressed and despondent.

Listen to Fiona's call to Kieno Kammies:

Great news!

As always, CapeTalk's listeners were listening to her call, and a number of them got in touch with the station and we got them in contact with Fiona.

One such company was SFI, an air-conditioning maintenance company. Not only were they willing to give him a job interview, they also gave him R200 to cover the cost of getting to them.

Take a listen to Fiona's follow-up call below:

SFI Director Edward Hector says that because Yandisa has no working experience in the field, he has been given a set of tools which staff members would normally have to purchase themselves. He will be working with a qualified air-conditioning artisan and another assistant.

Yandisa will be employed on a 3-month contract before they appoint him on a more permanent basis, but so far the feedback has been that he has a good attitude, is well presented and communicates well.

Here are some of the photos of Yandisa:
