Sizwe’s friends on politics and racism

Season 1 Episode 1

“Everyone here knows crime….everyday someone gets robbed….crime does not start here in our community, its starts in Parliament, they also commit crime”

“Pregnancy’s a competition here….because of this grant money…..they don’t spend it on their children, they spend it on alcohol”

From crime and corruption, to pregnancy and grant money defrauding, young people from Site B in Khayelitsha talk about life as they know it. Speaking from the township perspective, they reflect on the present whilst dreaming of future success.
