“…land gets sold you’ll find this place is mostly holiday resorts…..most of the land is taken by estate villages but then we don’t get houses. It’s been more 12 years”
“….the promise that came to the communities was that any development that takes place here the community should get something but its never happened…the community never gets anything that is promised….they build swimming pools but we cannot use running water….we’re still living in the Apartheid Era, we are not free yet to get what we’re suppose to get as equals in the free democracy of South Africa”
South Africa has progressed, however, much still needs to be done, as confirmed by the residents of Zwelihle – a small township situated between the more affluent towns of Hermanus and Sandbaai. We sat down with members of the township as they shared the difficulties they experience. They speak of underdeveloped housing, the lack of job opportunities and Government support as well as the language barriers they face whilst searching for employment in the surrounding areas, even comparing their current struggles to those faced during Apartheid. They feel ignored and discouraged as much of their efforts to improve the situation for themselves ends in stagnation. Leading many to a life of crime as a last resort.
