This area is part of ward three which consist of different communities who are living different lifestyles as Skebheni,Machobeni,Matikwe,Matata e.t.c…As Malungisa we are trying to cover the whole ward , we are sanding a vote of invitation to any young candidate from ward three who is welling to join us in the struggle for social development.

This is part of the Raw Footage compiled by Malungisa in Mzinyathi a village in the North of Durban. Incudes mainly collected interwviews following standard D/S questionnaire format i.e. biography, family tree, and memories about area, what has changed? What would you change? Dreams for future of area/self, popular saying/proverb, favorite song and any other comments (see D/s questionnaire on )…
Mix languages mainly isiZulu and some English. Very rough but interesting reflections about the history of amaZulu, changes in African traditional rule, the dictatorship of modernity, issues of current youth thought… songs… poems and indegenous Hip-Hop.
