NELSON Mandela Bay spiritual leaders and pastors desperate to bring peace to Helenvale have committed themselves to getting the suburb’s gangsters to lay down their weapons and make peace with one another.

“The responsibility has always been ours – it is time we live up to it,” they said at a meeting in Gelvandale yesterday.

The meeting, at the Gelvandale athletics track, was arranged by DA ward councillor Nico du Plessis after the leaders of the Dustlifes approached a pastor, Douglas Joseph, saying they were ready to lower their weapons and make peace with their rivals, the Upstand Dogs.

    good luck with this and may God be with you and protect you and yours as you try to stop this gangsterism in Port Elizabeth. we as a town need to put asise time to pray against the gangstrism and also as a country for all the areas affected by gansters.
