South Africa: Life in Langa
TweetBookmark
Published October 4, 2012
MELISSA TURLEY, FOR THE PULITZER CENTER
Many South Africans still make their home in townships, segregated areas where they relocated after being forcibly removed from "white only" land. Some houses resemble small ranch-like homes with running water and modern amenities. Other styles of homes, called informal settlements, are box-like structures made from storage containers, metal or wood. They lack water, heat and toilets. With every flood residents risk losing their homes.
The township of Langa, the first in Cape Town, combines a unique historical past with a forward-looking future.
