Listen to the entire show
Welcome to the Radio Workshop podcast!
We live an amazing vibrant and multicultural society in South Africa. Walk down the street in many communities across the country and you’re just as likely to hear French, Swahili, Lingala, or Yoruba, as you are Xhosa, Zulu, Afrikaans, or English.
In recent years, many of our neighbours from the north have made South Africa their home. Some have come in search of opportunity, or better education for their children, and some have escaped very challenging situations in their home countries. While for many, the move to SA might be temporary, others have become adopted South Africans. They have a lot to offer, we can learn a lot from each other, and can grow this nation together.
On today’s Radio Workshop, we hear from young people who may not have a green ID book, but who call South Africa their home.

Audio Diary: King
On today’s programme we’re speaking with young people whose families may come from other countries, but who call South Africa their home.
Next we meet Jafiya Kadende, otherwise known as King. King is a Grade 11 learner at Maitland High School in Cape Town. We gave King an audio recorder and a microphone, and got him to document his South African life.
