Winters Day – by Nosiphelo Bunu


Red Hill is a place where we live with different people who come from different homes. It is a place where we have positive as well as negative things.

In Red Hill we do not have necessary school. Sometimes the electricity or water goes off without notice. If you are a school child you don’t have chance to read your book because there are a lot of shebeens (illegal bars) and noise. You can’t focus when you hear noise – and we have an even bigger population of shacks and toilets. We have a long way to go to the bus stop when we go to school.

But in Red Hill we live without paying any rent, the government provides us with free school transport and we don’t pay for water and electricity. Because of this we don’t have to have loans.
