KwaMashu is Durban's oldest township born out of the forced removal of Black Africans from Cato Manor by the Group Areas Act of the apartheid government.
Through the brutality of political violence, economic apartheid and poverty KwaMashu has risen to the challenge to produce some of South Africa's greats. This is a vivid documentary about the people who still call KwaMashu their home. Still My Home was created from a unique business
partnership and skills exchange between Ethiopia, South Africa and the African Diaspora in the UK.
