SOWETO, SOUTH AFRICA SEPTEMBER 29: Izikhothane youth display their clothes at a petrol station on September 29, 2012 in Dobsonville, Soweto, South Africa. Hundreds of the Izikhothane kids later gathered in Thokoza Park and moved on to other areas in Soweto, to show off their dance moves and play loud music. The Izikhothane bling kids are the new fears of residents and parents in the townships of Johannesburg. They buy (and sometimes burn and destroy) fancy brand clothes and shoes in Soweto. They also like to drink and display expensive bottles of alcohol. Many of these kids are desperate to get the latest clothes and the pressure is hard on their parents.
