Desmond Tutu’s dreams for Cape Town fade as informal apartheid grips the city | World news | The Observer

But as Tutu defied his years to dance with the Soweto Gospel Choir, half an hour’s drive away, another churchman had just completed a month-long hunger strike. Xola Skosana is pastor of the Way of Life church in Khayelitsha, Cape Town’s biggest township. He went without food throughout September to protest at the treatment of the poor. “It’s interesting to me that a woman would make up a bed in a five-star hotel then come home to sleep on the floor,” Skosana said from his rudimentary office. “Or cook the best meal for someone else and come back and live off a slice of bread.”
