MAKHAZA: ‘How do you lock 10 people in a squatter camp, in a one-roomed house? Even the house ends up sweating until the windows get foggy’.
A COVID-19 story by Samuel Flans and Alfa Fiphaza exploring the feelings and concerns of residents of Makhaza, Khayelitsha and surrounds concerning the difficulties of a township lockdown, financial and food instability and concerns that citywide lockdown restrictions may not be compatible with township life under COVID-19 and other diseases in South Africa.
