The Western Cape’s oldest township, KwaLanga, is marking its centenary in April 2023, presenting an opportunity to reflect on the township’s rich history and heritage. The University of Cape Town (UCT) has a history of engaging with KwaLanga residents, conducting research work, and collaborating on community initiatives.
“The local people need to know that this is a place that houses their history,
and they should use opportunities to come and reflect on where we’ve come from.”
– Thami Sijila, Langa Heritage Museum curator and tour guide
