The community of the notorious Glebelands Hostel in Umlazi Township South of Durban, is hosting the Ingoma Cultural Festival to promote unity.

Event organiser, Mbuyiseni Thusi from Ubunye Bama Hostela, an organisation that promotes unity, says most people who live in hostels turn to crime because of unemployment.

“We are here to strengthen unity amongst the hostels residents. We want unity and peace at Glebelands Hostel.  Hostel residents must remember that we are here because of work, having a misunderstanding should’ve not Lead to bloodshed. People must learn to engage and sort out their differences.” says Thusi.

Meanwhile women from the Glebelands Hostel have welcomed this initiative.

They add, “I’m also part of the maidens that usually go to kwaNongoma for the reed dance. We are here to support hostels so that we are saying no to their fighting,”

“We are here to witness something we have been yearning for unity amongst the hostel residents. The killings and the faction fights need stop. The event will also create awareness about Gender-Based Violence.”
