Durban’s hostels have been devastated by violence that has claimed the lives of many people. The Ubunye bamaHostela recently organised a traditional dancing event as part of efforts of furthering peace, unity, social cohesion and an end to violence in hostel communities. The event featured groups from different hostels in eThekwini.

The scene was a festive and jovial one with highly charged groups threatening to crack the tar with the stomping of feet as they danced and sang songs of hope.
