South Africa: Mother City to Some - the Story of Housing in Cape Town

Cape Town is the second largest city in South Africa. Affectionately known as the 'mother city', it is home to about 3,4 million people. Helen Zille recently argued in the Sunday Times that Cape Town is "the least unequal city in South Africa." The point, however, is that Cape Town is an unequal city - a white city that is not very motherly towards poor people of colour.
