Residents are usually stealing electricity from the minicipality as they can't afford to buy it. Khayelitsha is one of the poorest and fastest growing townships in South Africa. People usually come from the rural areas in Eastern Cape province to find work as maids and laborers. Most people don't find work and the unemployment rate is very high, together with lot of violence and a growing HIV-Aids epidemic itÕs a harsh area to live in..©Per-Anders Pettersson/iAfrika Photos.
