QANDU QANDU | 2020

QANDU QANDU | 2020

A DIRE LACK IN HEALTHCARE, SANITATION AND HUMAN DIGNITY: On Thursday, 6 August, the Social Justice Coalition (SJC) visited Qandu-Qandu in Khayelitsha, Cape Town. They wanted to count how many people live there.

Qandu-Qandu is an informal settlement that was established in 2018. The SJC helps people in squatter camps to fight for basic rights. To date, the SJC has counted 4 835 houses and estimate an average of 3-5 people per household. Residents have no electricity or running water and say that there is one chemical toilet for every 50 houses. Chemical toilets are portable, don’t require water and use chemicals to break down human waste and neutralise odours. The City of Cape Town doesn’t provide any services, other than chemical toilets to Qandu-Qandu.

A film by Samuel Flans, Alfa Fipaza and Bongekile Booi.
Soundtrack by Samuel Flans / Innocent Muziq.
