Exhibit Title: Re Sa Eme! (We Are Still Waiting)
Location: South Africa
Residents of “Makause”, an informal settlement in Primrose in Germiston, have been waiting for Ekurhuleni’s Housing Department to fulfill their promises of building proper houses and sanitation infrastructures for the community since 2008. Residents say only a few people were moved from Primrose Squatter Camp to Tsakane near Boksburg in 2015. The place was an open space with RDP toilets only: no houses had been built.Some of the residents couldn't move to Tsakane because they could not afford the R60 a day for transportation, to commute back to Germiston where they work, while others work in the Johannesburg CBD. “Is better to stay in a shack with no electricity and walk every day to save up money,” said Ennie Matsimela, a longtime resident of “Makause”.
