SOWETO, SOUTH AFRICA OCTOBER 5: A woman tries on an Afro wig hair piece in a shop on October 5, 2012 at Maponya shopping Mall, Soweto, South Africa. Maponya is one of several new shopping malls in the township. Soweto today is a mix of old housing and newly constructed townhouses. The population in Soweto is estimated to be around one million people. A new hungry black middle-class is growing steadily. Many residents work in Johannesburg but the last years many shopping malls have been built, and people are starting to spend their money in Soweto. (Photo by: Per-Anders Pettersson)
