african hairstyles. we have. to spread because. i'm really. but 1st we bring you a disturbing story from south africa's largest city johannesburg and the township of soweto it gang driving by in a phobia has been terrorizing migrants this report shows that a phobia at its worst but sadly is the reality for many migrants in townships across the country. when nelson mandela came to power in 1904 sudden malenko who left somalia for the rainbow nation to escape hunger and he's a really good dude and your life is a shopkeeper in johannesburg today everything is going on october 30th 2018 and angry mob stormed his shop in the home and bandits to the ground money to escape but his girlfriend died in the flames. literally you know and i
4:32 pm
was. see i don't have. anything in anymore. i lost my girlfriend arlo's dollars i lost my can deny was everything. sue was telling myself that it made back. but. you tricked me to take me out so i decided no don't go to. so some violent. incident was just one of the $139.00 documented shop lutyens in south africa in 2018 motivated by ins in a for every month in townships like white city but african born foreigners are victims of violent hate crimes many locals think they are responsible for low wages and job losses. we need as an a for the gang who often
4:33 pm
target foreign owned stores its leader calls himself the deference to him foreigners are not just easy targets he holds them for responsible for his own misery. you go to join a spare great know every corner you go to. for this war that's working that foreign policy in ways working it's a job for a south african was supposed to be making south africans now they are dependent on money and money from government it's not that people don't want to wait for the people they want to work but there are no jobs there because they are taking all the chores so obviously we are going to call these neighborhood is controlled by gangs even the police don't enter the slum which is built on top of a dam only drugs help make the residents lives more bearable they project their
4:34 pm
frustrations onto foreigners who they believe better off. i have to do this if i don't do it then my family will suffer in my youth i see how many soldiers i have my soldiers must eat they must move my soldiers because my soldiers more if i don't have anything really really please god will teach you i live my friend and will pray to the lord to forgive us. because he knows we don't have jobs. before their reach tonight the gang members smoke some hearing they see it's trying to strike again. but not all south africans have the same attitude as gaddafi in his main my leg was neighbors helping me get back on his feet after the attack they gave him blankets food and most importantly the strength to carry on. and as i was on the high court right
4:35 pm
that's not right we are all humans we should treat each other with respect and show born to he is human no matter where he comes from. we have a handful of his neighbors neko has restored his old shop he hopes he will be able to restock soon but those responsible for the death of his partner still have not been found the police did not want to investigate the mother of a foreigner he still feels the culprits might return at any time. now it's great that he has some good neighbors to supportive reminds us that there are still good side to humanity xenophobia is a serious issue that needs to be addressed in south africa especially as a long way to go in dealing with it to get to the heart of the issue we sent our reporter money to alexandra it township of johannesburg known for frequent outburst of violence against foreigners he spoke with residents and migrants alike the
4:36 pm
problem of xenophobia. the 77 percent is back on the road once more and this week we are in johannesburg south africa specifically the township of alexandra and it's here that we've witnessed some of the west skirmishes related to sin a phobia it's not a problem exclusive to south africa but why is it that it seems to be flaring up quite often here well i have a very good looking panel here who are going to help me answer that question and i want to start with ray who is actually a resident here what is the current situation in south africa in a spazz in a phobia is constant. as for now like currently it's like. before we would find cases where by like foreigners are actually being violently attacked by local residents because of the foreigners obviously so yeah i want to get to the food affinity you are actually working with a consortium of refugees and migrants here in south africa why do you think that
4:37 pm
the flare ups here end up being violent i think in south african context quite a number of issues that in south africa we get not to be addressed issues of service delivery in communities where the local residents will be crying for say 10 basic services to be delivered in their communities and when the government not coming in forefront in developing such kind of critical basic services. that local resident with then 10 up to the foreign nationals to out there and that's where they take foreign nationals because they are the most vulnerable groups in the communities. series like as you can see like most of the sort of we can actually we really do like one things positive pullup like. drinking and everything like that while for a while foreign people move away from their countries to come sort of we can study . and when they study turn to get the jobs that they once let me come to little here you are a university student how is the representation in your city is it. what we're
4:38 pm
hearing there that south africa's a busy lazing around and it's filled with foreigners i think if they're foreigners coming into south africa illegally that was going to be like a little bit like easier for us because if they come illegally in south africa like most of the foreigners here they kill our fellow brothers and sisters they kill your fellow brothers and sisters exactly so that is that is a problem do you mean literally killing like murder exactly like you would say. if they kill and. they look they don't not like find fingerprints and stuff i want to see if by sure of hands how many here are foreigners meaning not south african. yeah ok so how does it feel for you to hear that foreigners are coming to this country and causing crime the situation is going straight up to all of you
4:39 pm
here or the speakers so my sister you said that the foreigners killed your brothers and your sisters right the only thing that's going to come in my mind is that i need to self-defense myself which means when your brother is going to pull up in my house and try to take me definitely i'm going to kill him why because you want to i take me he wants to kill me and at the same time this is our i've never seen a black person who are like some present in my life because because the skin is white so since like all of us to all of us we really belong in africa. i really just want to understand from you ray do you feel that if the foreign nationals were for some reason or the other to vacate this area that life would suddenly be ok your hospitals that have a modern style of course the country has a country is going to have its own problems but i feel if the illegal foreign is to be shifted things would be right i don't understand this please help me
4:40 pm
understand because you. we ask someone who's documented does it change for you when you have your papers there's a perception of other south africans against you as a foreign a change or is it still the same still the same they still see you as like a foreigner because at the end of the day they don't know who is who is documented you know i mean like i could come from could be like from literally in this neighborhood and everything and be a foreigner and then it won't change you from here legally or illegally they will still see me as a foreigner let me come to you son kyra because a lot of things have been said and you're talking about documenting people we've heard that it doesn't matter the perception is still the same all those things that show us that i'm from the so to i'm from mozambique i'm from this particular country you know why you need to do that so that everywhere you go you're able to prove yourselves as to who you are but now we have different forms of pressures
4:41 pm
that are forcing people out of their homes economic migration is one of them climate change is another one so what do we say to those people you're not welcome in south africa no not at all was saying people need to come to south africa legally there's no board who can go to any other country illegally that isn't everyone who's coming here in the county must be documented because you cannot come and i'm saying if you are coming here and we find you roaming around and if you don't have any legal document to be here you must have deported to our country what do you have to do how do you feel about that most of our leaders and most of our community members they talk about people been documented people to access people to access a refugee status but the very same people who are saying that they don't have an idea how difficulty it is to access just a particular status in south africa currently in the whole of 54000000 population of south africa we only have 3 refugee reception offices that deals with refugees
4:42 pm
how do we make sure that in 20. 24 we're not in south africa talking about the same thing when if documentation is. important it on the government must listen to the people and documented the foreignness documents about those who would love to talk him into it because one of the studio types that were you undocumented maybe everyone says not undocumented so eastern assumption it's a stereotype too much you can eat beans in but when i saw him she knew undocumented any more solutions if like some of the people we are they don't have their i.d.'s and things quoted then that's the reason why i keep saying that our leaders are not doing their jobs so what's the solution what's the way forward the way forward is that. we need we need to get the way to them and find a way to the people find ways that firstly to the political leaders is to out statement which are very fight and very fight because if they unverified statements
4:43 pm
encourage their division among some communities secondly the issue of documentation it does not just rely on go into a home office it also rely on the policies in place so we need to educate each other and with it africa ok on that note i suppose we can end this conversation it's a pity really that we can go on and on forever but as you can see the issues i mean yeah the biggest one here for me being documentation documentation documentation i don't know what you took from it but thank you for watching. thank you but it's a shame that most of the participants failed to condemn the attacks and killings violence is never the answer and i'm really disappointed that people were trying to justify it no one has a right to attack or take another person's life. but what do you
4:44 pm
think you can add your thoughts on the topic by gauging in the debate on our facebook page and you can watch the longer version of that street debate on our you tube channel now let's take a deep breath and move on we're taking a trip to tanzania as big as a city that is it's home to more than $4000000.00 people including a group of streets. we asked the crew to show us around the aadhaar check it out. hello this is such a cool we're going to take you on a ride in there is something. this is our city. local. major. and i made my suit many for short together from the white charter crew tanzania's finest collective
4:45 pm
who proudly called dar the our hood but before we check out das bustling center we head into major favorite coffee shop in one neighborhood how do we get there would at 3 we would buy judges does favorite means of transport. but. there's nothing better than extra coffee from your favorite barrister served with his tasty sweets of course. afghanistan you know those like us. graffiti isn't new to dar in 1970 many young people started to search for greener pastures elsewhere but before they left they took a piece of charcoal and route their names on the walls around the city just like here in the coffee shop as a way of leaving the mark young people coming from sounds like you. are allowed.
4:46 pm
to be there with the country and you know i'm going to chalk marks where called chata and now just like back then young people are still typing their names around the city as a way to be remembered whether they are leaving the country altogether or enjoying the hustle and bustle of dar. dara salaam is east africa's biggest city and an economic powerhouse to watch a crew plan to do a graffitti piece as one of the city's big bust him. as afternoon but unfortunately they run out of spray paint but they are in luck here are the markets in the city center you can find almost anything you're looking for so it's the perfect place to grab some spray cans bright you can see here so you can take 2 or 3 days. as you can good friendships to find maybe just route so that's the challenge ok so
4:47 pm
maybe it's not that easy but eventually what shutter crew can get started the 4 friends have learned how to make the most of what they have to the street art the coop to keep the free spirits of dire salaam alive which continues to attract artist and activist from all around the world. young people from occupation know that all the only place where in the seventy's and eighty's all the revolution around the world from malcolm x. to take all of them as sound when they've been in this city so they see don't call it their version r.e.c. . so what's the watch out to cruise biggest dream encouraging more young people to express themselves with graffiti art so what are you waiting for grab a can and chatter chatter. thanks for the what's outside crew for showing us. so you should definitely put that on your travel list. next report
4:48 pm
is also about. to be more specific millions of african women spend hours in the silent chair undergoing the painful and time consuming process of breeding the i have and getting extensions our very own is a living example of that. millions of women swear they braided hair they spend hours undergoing the uncountable process of getting extensions to use it it can money is one of them for young african women getting your head done is no walk in the park i can tell you about for free it can take hours and with you know people pulling in different directions it can be rare in painful but today we want to go beyond the hairstyles i want to find out why women are spending so much money so much time on their head why is it such a big deal why is it such a big identity maka for african when. you can't trust anybody with your precious looks but edith knows that she's in safe hands like movies and that's
4:49 pm
a market can. be $450.00 euros a year they're here. 56 duty and you just need to be smart even the bible says the hazel months in the movie if you must be teased from here in new bring you need to also make quick flowers on top of your braids. ok so most women the community go to the well maintained crew who can but it's not a one place he extensions are the most vocal way to promote and many of the most of the week or. more and more young women and rejecting easy and natural options a growing number of the hair stylist promoting natural hair. i think that was one big lie that we bought and you know even when we look at white people's had their way through the end streets you want to be like that but why you know our hair doesn't naturally grow streety grows kinky clients are making
4:50 pm
a statement to women and you have to kind of calm it will do it if you want to join the natural movement you want it's quite a commitment it needs a lot of commitment just the way you take care of a baby or something it also needs the same care. so natural doesn't mean you know it can't quit the old eating. so when we say our hair is so strongly rooted to identity does it mean that if i choose to wear a wig girl we've i lose my identity as a as an african woman absolutely not absolutely not i still wear weaves and read and i braid my hair and it does not take away from my identity as a natural natural head african woman it's just a way to stitch up your style or even going to have even great an actual have without you know subjecting you to constant money. and of course also plenty of room for him to drive you cannot train him to eat.
4:51 pm
well better you than me i don't think i can do without all of us were allows she that like me for me i don't need to braid my right well today we have a brand new segments to share with you on the 77 percent it's called the spread host kyra lucas. has and says us questions on sex love relationships and nothing is off limits but if you don't believe me just watch. hello there and welcome to the spread a safe space where we get to discuss everything facts and relationships today our e-mail comes from a lady by the name of time diesel and she says hi kat can we discuss consent under the influence of alcohol last weekend i was out on the date after a few drinks i ended up going home with this guy and woke up the next morning having no recollection of what had happened the night before and had me thinking
4:52 pm
when sleeping with a partner for the 1st time if either or both of you were drunk how do you gauge consent. while that's a big one 1st let's start by defining consent consent as an agreement between participants to engage in different sexual activities consent isn't always verbal but agreeing to participate in different sexual acts helps to form stronger boundaries let's paint a picture to better understand your question so you're out with somebody for the 1st time you go to a nice little restaurant you're having grown up the food is great the music even better and the drinks just hitting the right spot so much so that it gives you the courage to make the 1st move you say to your date hey i like your clothes i bet they've the better on my bedroom floor you both laugh as lame as that joke is there was an element of truth to it you have more during conversation is flowing flirtation is being reciprocated and before you know it's mid-sentence whom your date for a kiss on you live at this point you probably think that your date is ready to go
4:53 pm
all the way right or wrong this is where verbal consent to one very important just feel free to ask do you want to come back to my place and even when your date says yes it doesn't mean that they want to sleep with you maybe they're just interested in interior doors are you you see the thing with consent is that it can be withdrawn at any time and the absence of an enthusiastic yes especially when it comes to sexual interactions just mean. because it sometimes really hard for peace . well to understand the basics of consent here is a list of things that consent is not silence is not concerned what somebody is wearing is not consent consensus another time is not always consent guiltiness somebody into saying yes is not consent somebody's sexuality is not consent someone's gender is not consent and somebody's drunk is definitely not consent the greatest thing about sex is it can be so much more beautiful when 2 consenting adults agree to use the are sticking me to engage so place and have fun from
4:54 pm
