#5  Democracy Gauge: Brian Mahlangu

In the shadow of the Marlboro Gautrain station, in the heart of one of South Africa’s most affluent regions, the cardboard and hardwood shacks of Setswetla informal settlement stand in stark contrast to the mansions of its neighboring suburb of Sandton.

Situated on the banks of the Jukskei River, the informal settlement is a boiling pot of cultures, ethnicities and nationalities. Community leader Brian Mahlangu spoke to SABC News about life in Setswetla since the dawn of the democracy.
