Nkandla

Nkandla is a town in the uThungulu district of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. It is the district where former President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma is from.

Township

In South Africa, the terms township and location usually refer to the often underdeveloped, racially segregated urban areas that, from the late 19th century until the end of apartheid, were reserved for non-whites, namely Black Africans, Coloureds and Indians.


Each and every township in South Africa is almost the same.

Cape Flats

The term Cape Flats refers to a flat, sandy stretch of land which is located on the outskirts of the city of Cape Town. It has been accurately described as the "dumping ground of apartheid" and it is here that people of colour (non-whites in "old South Africa" language) were relocated to in terms of the infamous Group Areas Act.


I am from the Cape Flats where we hear gunshots every night.

Balloon Village

A small village based in Limpopo just outside Tzaneen. It is the only village in Limpopo that has a rich soil when it comes to farming. It is known for having all sorts of scarce fruits and vegetables.


I was born and bred in Balloon village

NMU

NMU (formerly known as NMMU) is Nelson Mandela University in Gqeberha, Eastern Cape. It is the University you go to when you get rejected at Rhodes.


What does a Rhodes student and an NMU student have in common?
They both applied at Rhodes!

Johannesburg

Johannesburg also known informally as Jozi, Joburg, or "The City of Gold", is the largest city in South Africa. The city was established in 1886 following the discovery of gold on what had been a farm


My friends from Johannesburg don't know anything about struggle.

South Africa

South Africa is a country on the southernmost tip of the African continent.


I was born and bred in South Africa.

Backroom

A backroom is a room in a yard that's usually at the back of the main house. It is mostly used for rental purposes.


I'm renting a backroom in Tembisa.

Cape Town

Cape Town is a port city on South Africa’s southwest coast, on a peninsula beneath the imposing Table Mountain. It is the oldest and second largest city in South Africa, after Johannesburg.


I can't wait to go to Cape Town this summer.
